“I had discovered that learning something, no matter how  complex, wasn’t hard                                           when I had a reason to want to know it.”― Homer H. HickamRocket Boys

sky winds
as summer wanes
high on a mountain ridge
where the trees meet the sky
i face the sky winds
felt only as i walk out into the woods
along road’s edge
dropping out of sight
i close my eyes
lift my face to the sun
 my heart towards God’s
soothing soul
i look up to the sky
and
the sky looks down
a cup held
i face the wind
i touch the wind
i refresh my soul
what do I do?
i’m leaving this place
i capture the sun & the sky
i push them down deep into my soul
tangerine sunsets
painting the way starward
above the tree line
out and away
this October sky
held our Harvest Moon setting on top of the sun
collecting a jar full of stars
to light my way
wanting to become
i want to know who i am
and
who i can be
something different
greater than
this 
cookie-cutter life
seeing my soul
knowing my soul
somehow
autumn brings new beginnings
i wait in hope
autumn’s brillance
delivering
new promises
i rise in hope
i follow the golden colors
towards a new path
up and over this mountain ridge

  1. collecting a jar full of stars'- under a sky of tangerine – this is so lovely Joanie – paints a way forward of promise, fresh anew – as Autumn sweeps away painting her colorful canvas – I loved this so uplifting and gorgeous music to read and imbibe – beautiful x

  2. I too love autumn, Joanie…and look to it as you…a metaphor for a font of hope and new beginnings. This is a lovely work…tribute to this favored season, bringing forth a capture of a new start. Just lovely!
