Autumn Morningby Kathie Houchens
Treetops tinted gold, rust, and orange
Stand on tiptoe under misty morning sky.
Hillside hemlock, pine, maple, and oak
Join branch and limb in solidarity.
A quilt of contrasts cloaks the lake shore.
Fog layer lifts to reveal
Rich-hued foliage reflected in lake’s mirror.
Crows squawk , chickadees chirp “Glory!”
Wild geese honk to punctuate the praise.
Thick stillness feels pregnant with holy presence.
Cosmic Love transforms everything.
Creation enriched by differences.
I breathe deeply of possibility.
Embraced by beauty, awakened to connections,
I set my intentions for the day.
