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.
