   Tell Me, Autumn, How’d You Fix

Short southern sun, long northern breeze,
The slant of sunshine through the leaves,
Cool sprinkled crystal moonlit dews
That wait to gloss the morning hues,
Warm summer’s feeding frenzy done,
With Chloro Phyllous on the run,
Now Xanthophyll and Carotene
Replace the banquet of the green,
To celebrate before my eyes
Bouquets of colors ‘neath the skies.

So, tell me, Autumn, how’d you fix
Miraculous this bouquet’s mix?
No accidental atom crash
Within a swirl of gaseous trash
Could dropped into the ground a seed
That learned to drink and learned to feed,
And set before my wondrous eyes
Bouquets of colors ‘neath the skies,
The Master from beginning knew
All stuff of life and beauty too.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
