Photography by Tami Johns

It’s on these bright,  beautiful days in Autumns’ prime. . .
When I red, yellow, and brown my way through leaving
Before she dies,  all together

In the cold of it all?
Like a winding sheet, wrapped in palls, every last pigment will be raked. . . Uncolored.
Tapering in jade and redounding in wight’s
But,   it’s crushing me!
Spanned in the tints and dotage’s, merely, of our own maturation. . . 

“Why do I keep seeing sheets blowing in the wind?”

End-where everything has fallen from the trees. . .

Bare naked we’ll stand before Him!

Looking up to this seasons’ sky. . .  arms outstretching. . .
Like pleading, before our God,  He answered me!

“Each falling color embodies the gather of every race. . .
It’s in the green, I notice,  when you become like aliens to Me, taking for granted the Spring and Summer’s I give . . .
Rejoice in each other, every color!. . .  and lief your Fall’s
For in a Winter’s end. . .  We ALL are one. . ."

"All together, Autumn."

Kimmy this is so beautiful and captivating that I have read it three times and enjoyed it more with each reading. It is always a joy to see your name come up on a new post and posts like this are the reason why. Love that picture as it you?

You are showing the blushing colors of Autumn that coyly try to hide from winter.

Spiritual, wonderful uniquely Kimmy Van Kooten autumn...glorious, bold and brilliant.

Wonderful writing, Kimmy; well done! Glad summer is overwith; can't stand the heat, especially since I AM older. Heat bothers me more than it used to. Cold, too, but I'd rather be cold than hot!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Picking out every possible item of the moment and placing it all together like this, is truly genius writing.
There's so much in this short piece. Very very clever.
Or just plain talented!

Reviewed by George Carroll
Hurray for this delightful write on how a season gives us memories that linger long after each leaf has fallen.
