A Drive through the Fall

“Look! Burning embers over there with a

Blazing fire next to it! Oh! And, look!

Glowing lemon yellows and greens! And

There! Purples and dark greens and yellow

Greens and, oh! Look! More burning embers!

It’s so byoot-ti-full!” And tears well up in her eyes,

He just gazes around, enjoying the fall quietly.

Everywhere’s Lights

A friend calls late, her daughter

rushing to an Emergency room, my friend

needing a ride to Minerva to pick up the

car at her husband’s work place, and we

drive her, and on the way are blessed with an

absolutely gorgeous, fiery, electric sunset

colors flying everywhere, filling the sky, and

exciting lightning bugs flash their white

lights everywhere , from every field and grassy

space, then on our way back an unexpected

fantastic display of colorful fireworks fly over

the skies in Kensington, flashing, falling into

all the senses on not just another

usual Monday evening in eastern Ohio

A Full Evening Palette

Primary red male cardinal and his

Used palette colored teenagers

Abstracted blue jays

Big neutral-pastel dove

Bouncy earth-toned sparrows

Brown momma red-wing black bird

All having a green summer backyard

Get together with sprinkling water

Drops from gray clouds beneath a

Blue evening sky
