I opened my eyes
and saw the colors of autumn
I have always loved the season of fall
Red, orange, yellow
Crackling leaves beneath your feet
I wish I could walk through this path forever
Never knowing where to go
But allowing myself to follow through
Autumn is like the breath of life
Quiet in its stillness
Subtle in its power
Touching in its spirit
