Fresh Breath of Autumn

13 Nov

And the leaves begin to fade

Into brighter colors

And as the seasons change

I experience brand new wonders

There’s a secret power

Hidden in the tranquil leaves

Falling from that tower

That only silence can release

Watch the magic fall

With the Autumn breeze

Watch the beauty unfold

From the magestic trees

It all comes from the dryness

It all comes from death

And yet there is a likeness

To a life’s first breath

A fresh breath of fall

A fresh breath of new

A fresh breath of it all

And I’ll share my first breath of Autumn ….with you

written September 2009. It was my first autumn, as I grew up in the south where leaves don’t change colors really, & we didn’t get snow for winter… so, this song was my wonder at the changing of seasons…
