Before the ending

There was a beginning

Was it so very long ago

Or only yesterday

I am not certain

And not even sure that it matters

After all

When the moment of now

Comes quietly to call

Will you gently answer

Or let the moment fall

As music from the towering trees

Do you see the notes

One by one

Brilliant autumn leaves

Drifting by the faded evening sun

Their song comes to rest

In my open hand

as love spreads swiftly

Across hopeful heart and waiting land

I like autumn very much and took this photo last year. It will be a while yet before it’s autumn here.

    1. I think itโ€™s a species of maple. Itโ€™s definitely not a sweetgum or oak but itโ€™s so very pretty each year. Yes! A long time to wait! This was taken last November. Thank you for taking the time to read๐ŸŒท

  1. I like the transition seasons, spring and fall. They are on the way to becoming, as opposed to merely being. Things change in transition; they’re coming or going, are in flux, flow. Winter and summer, on the other hand, sit still… Nice photo, as always. Take care.
