There's a fire sweeping out
in front of us, you know.
Autumn rolling in, covering us
from head to toe

in leaves that lay on lawns
and by the curbside under cars.
Our thoughts travel the landscape
in this wide world of ours.

Country roads glow picturesque
like a painting on the wall.
We hang our heads or we hold them high
from the beauty of it all.

We know that we've been blessed
to be a part of this scene.
We hold on to our palette
each color a memory.

The road that lay ahead
gets prettier each day.
Foliage to prep the canvas
of white snow on the way.

While the trees still rustle in the wind,
I'll take the time to say
thank you for it all.
For each and every day.


from The Light of What We Are, released March 28, 2017
