Autumn

Up on an Ozark Hillside

Up on an
Ozark
hillside
I live high
in the tree tops

where green meets the sky

And Earth’s
wayside
anchor
roots
caravan
down
to
flowing
lake
waters

as lavender
light

t r a v e l s … t h r o u g h

on its way

And I nestled
among
the
living

Autumn

Living A Life

Seldom do we see
by ouselves
what we need
or through
an uncut path
the
way forward ~

Determination
to find
what truly matters
to us

Focus
on our actions
to
change the course
of our days
and the
journey we walk

Knowing
we have each
new day
to
begin again

To change
To grow
To become our

better selves
