Igniting My Memories

Various Fall Photos

Autumn leaves make the crisp air

Uncommonly warm and bright;

Theater for the eyes.

Undertones of red, orange, yellow, and green;

My mind returns to discovery days in Sawtooth forests or Sierra

Nevada meadows where sheep roam from high country to Nevada ranches.

Lively mountain climbs to lakes of glass

Encircled with aspens, willows, cottonwoods, and pine.

Awash in a painter’s brush of

Vesicles; small splatters of autumnal colors.

Electrically igniting my memories

Scattered from childhood to adult.
