Treasures in Autumn Gloom

Looking out the front window

the great big picture window

across the ponds in the driveway

across the wet highway

soaked fields just harvested yesterday

past the line of wilted sunflowers

green lawns

to the house across the way

where the oaks, maple trees and others

blaze brightly at their edges

golden fire burning into the green inside of themselves

not doused by the light continuous rain

cars going by

school bus

A flame that doesn’t go out even though it is raining

I can still blaze with my own power my own energy


even if there is a gloom around me

recovering from tonsillitis

Praise the colorful trees on a gloomy day!
