Autumn Falling

Autumn overwhelms our senses

Sunrise over our neighbor's home morning has indeed broken

Sienna – Maize – Umber

Oak and Maple trees behing our home

Terra Cotta – Walnut – Scarlet

The labyrinth with Native Red maple

The wind dancing through the leaves and the hairs on our skin

Turning its dance into a frontal assault as it roars through trees ripping the last of the leaves from their branches leaving behind skeletal remains

Leafless trees behind home

We witness the reaping of Gaia’s sustenance as combines roll over fields of soy and corn

Firlds of soybean and corn Eastern Pennsylvania

Leaving her creatures to glean what humans leave behind

Canada geese feeding on corn kernnels

Night falls earlier homes become our refuge
Pennsylvania homestead
As others choose to leave

Canada Geese
