September 15, 2012 Autumn Challenge The River Journal

Autumn
The lane ahead
Reaches out to me
Beckons my travel
From my vantage
High above the canyon
I see sunshine and shadows
Wait for me

Life is like that
Don’t you see
A cornucopia
Full to overflow
Trees dressed in color
Geese fly south in a V
Step on a crack
Break your Mother’s back

Wild meadow asters
Bloom purple along roadside
Sunflowers and chemisa-yellow
Herald change
Fall is here
Apples red and ready
An invitation to hungry bears

Sunshine and shadows
Joy and sorrows
Days of change
Marked on a calendar
Time of deep feelings
Preparation & expectation

Autumn is here
