Autumn pathway
Autumn had arrived and the leaves were turning,
The green had turned to red and brown,
Some leaves had already fallen to the ground.
The camera went click, click, click, as one after another the pictures were taken,
Leaves and animals taken in all sorts of views as the camera was filled up.
Tears ran down her face as she tried to think what he would like to see,
She knew it would be everything that she could make and take with her camera.
Back she went to put them onto the pc so he could take in the pathway at autumn time,
Grasses beginning to hang their heads, flowers going to the flower beds waiting for spring to come again.
Squirrels hiding nuts so they would be able to feed during winter, hiding their two hundred nuts and seeds, the number needed to survive a year of cold.
The wind was sweeping but he could not see this was a picture that is all for his needs, winter for him was coming on and winter for all where they had to be strong.
He saw the birds lining up on the wire, ready to go around the world, to new habitat and new food, wings being stretched in readiness of their own next adventure.
After a time he had to lay down no more strength he could find, pain medication within he lay his head down and slept.
Autumn was going by winter would soon be upon them

Beautiful writing Fred. I needed this a long time ago; living it without a shoulder was hard. I'll won't forget the day before he died, he asked to sit in his wheelchair in front of the opened front door . . . wanting to see the out-of-doors one more time. It meant a lot to him, sitting there, counting the colors in my island bed. People tend to walk away. They don't want to see the person they remember as robust turn into what cancer turns one into. But nature gives indiscriminately, laughing when you laugh, crying when you cry, mirroring the ever marching cycle of life and death.

Thank you for your work, Fred. It'll mean a lot to many. It does to me . . ..
