autumn thoughtful

the leaves on the trees glowing golden
in the late afternoon sun
the stone birdhouse lodged between
the bare tree’s branches
the old rusted jeep bearing down on me
coming around the bend in the road
the fallen acorns crunching beneath my heel
as i make that final turn for home
there’s a lone red leaf lying in the grass
gleaming like a jewel in a solemn sea of brown
the sun is dropping low behind the empty trees
darkness descending much too early now
leaving me feeling empty and alone
but home is glowing warm in the gathering dusk
it’s a promise of things to come
potent evidence of the order of the Universe
revealing itself on a thoughtful autumn afternoon
