Sometimes the sight and smell of a moment can really take one back...

A Surprise of Aspens

and the occasional fir
a sudden aspen cluster
A burst of sun
a waft of autumn zephyr
awaken a splash of gold
among aspens
a flash of memories
Flaxen leaves fall
against the backdrop of cerulean skies
and bring forth past perfume
and thoughts
A whisper on the wind
and I can scarcely breathe

Absolutely beautiful Regis, and today is the day that I needed to read this! As I gaze upon this beautiful picture and read these words so profoundly written I am reminded of God's wonderful creations, which sometimes we take for granted. Vow! Regis you have done it again, and you know what this poem will be around for generations to come. God bless you, and keep on writing!

Much Love,
