ORIGINAL ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
Signs of autumn are in the air.
Leaves are slowly losing their grip,
And soon prepare to tumble,
Acorns crunch beneath your feet,
All kinds of seeds nestle into the earth,
Starting the regeneration of life to come
The air is fresher,
The colors brilliant,
The crops are ready for harvest,
And the smell of apple pies permeates the air,
It can also be looked at this way,
No more warm days of summer,
No more lazy days on the beach,
Birds escaping in hoards to warmer climates.
Leaves pile up requiring a rake,
Snow is on the way,
The way we look at things in life,
Can have a great effect on how we live it,
A dark observation often leads to negative behavior and attitude,
Lord, help me to look at things the way you intended them to be,
As a gift from you, with no strings attached,
May I find beauty in all of your creation.
