Indian Summer Rhyme

I promise that this is my last posting about the trees of autumn, my favorite season. I captured a few good trees in the back of our building and the street behind it. Our swimming pool is surrounded by huge, old trees. I took the pool tree pictures high, because the trunks are hidden by the low buildings at the pool. The trees with trunks visible are on the street behind the pool.

The awesomeness of Fall
with SenTrees * standing straight and tall.
Leaves as lovely as flowers in Spring
Falling gently; no sound do they bring.

This season never disappoints my eyes,
especially the trees against clear, blue skies.
Each year I await this rapture
Each year my heart does capture….

Fall’s fleeting beauty—not a blunder.
Once more I stand in wide-eyed wonder.
Wishing this could last all year:
brilliant senTrees everywhere!

* I saw painting of trees a couple years ago that were standing tall in a forest. The artist named the painting “Sentrees.” Whoever it is, Thank You for the word.

    Lovely photos. Too soon, the beauty is carpeting the ground after the last wind and rain. Here only a few patterns of the gold lay among the brown.
