Walking under trees in between groves,
stepping on piled leaves on winding roads,
I looked around me and discovered
that the trees are naked and uncovered.
Their leaves are blowing in the wind,
being tossed in the air and softly land
in such magnificent colors that never end!
In yellow, orange, browns, rusts and reds,
deep purple and green as carpet they spreads.
Like the leaves, my thoughts get swept off the ground,
I’m pondering of upper worlds and my world around,
about life on earth and its mystery,
temptations, evil inclinations, sins and misery…
wondering about the leaves, the forbidden fruit, pain and loving,
piles of lies, betrayals, jealousy and conniving.
…”And the serpent was sly beyond any beast of the field…”
…”And Man is cunning in his nakedness…”
My thoughts wander deep, into the past they go,
where I walk past the tree of life, that one you know,
reliving that old experience of long time ago…
I sample from the tree of knowledge as a matter of fact,
simple and tasteful matters, getting smart, just like that!
…” And they realized that they were naked and they sewed together a fig leaf”…
And when I become aware of my opinion
on God, trees, animals and man’s dominion
all that is cruel, sad, and inhuman
torn and bad in God’s domain,
and how silent we remain,
I tear inside me and I tear…
My thoughts fly up high, they’re very swift
as the leaves blowing in the whistling wind; I too, drift
and leaf through the pages of my life, pondering my place
in this vast, enormous and amazing space called universe,
Autumn is time to turn a new leaf and know
that in spite of the harsh winters that come and go,
It’s time to welcome changes that the wind might blow
so we can grow.
that after the trees decay in the fall
they continue to grow,
Like them, we too, fall
get up again and stand tall.
that’s how we grow!
The season’s change is like an invitation
for rejuvenation and a chance to take a new direction.
Autumn is time to shed old layers of solitude
and grow new seeds of love and gratitude.
Days of growth will come with blooms in the spring,
new blossoms and joy they’ll bring.
Believe that we’ll love again from the depth of our hearts
and show that together we can have a fresh new start.
It’s time for a renewal and rebirth
with our magnificent earth.
Once again, another autumn is flying by
as I am watching the colorful leaves fly high.
I’m surrounded and enveloped by them, them, softly caressing
and lovingly counting my blessings…
I’m already longing to bask in the glory of it all
and yearning to see the splendor of the next fall!
