Living On Branches...Change

From sky to ground the seasons tears fall
Washing the last of colors onto the ground
Trees left bare, their barks exposed
Hollow and cold, the wind a desolate sound

Spilled onto the ground Falls brilliant reminders
The reds of maidens lips and oranges and yellows
Beyond the coming chill bemoaning change
Natures slumber begins, leaving her mellow

As silence descends louder than before
The coming of a crystalline white is speaking
Fires will warm the cozy desires within us
Holidays joining hearts as pleasures are seeking

Smells of warm breads and pies and hot cider
Toasted pecans popping loudly on open flames
Cedar branches waking up their fragrant scents
Living the seasons gifts in which our blessings came

Change is change in seasons or life
A foundation of strength from goodness or strife
Living on branches, naked or clothed in colors bright
Breathe in the beauty created within and in sight

Living On Branches...Change

Artist's Description

I woke up this morning to a cold rainy day that seemed like it was sad to be losing its colors so soon. The rain is gathering the leaves on the ground in bright blankets of colors. It is leaving the trees vulnerable to the coming winter so I am guessing that they are going to go to sleep sooner this year. Winter has a way of approaching that makes me get that languid feeling of wanting to cook and snuggle and nothing much else. :) He is rascal for sure but I gotta love old man Winter for that! Henry, my dog, of course isn’t EVER happy when Winter comes. He is very stingy with his affection and rations out the snuggles. Men!! Gotta love em…
