FALLING COLORS Empty FALLING COLORS

FALLING COLORS Archwa12


Falling colors gently they go,
one by one covering the ground.
On the wind they are blown
into the webs of spider's.

Falling colors dancing on the breeze,
going to places that are not seen.
The colors of sunset, some look like fire
dancing across the street, the multitude of colors.

Falling colors from the trees once were green,
with the coming of Autumn, many bright colors are seen.
First one then another floating down,
gathering in clusters leaving shapes all around.

Falling colors crunch beneath our feet,
sending a crispiness up into the air.
A fresh scent they bring till days end,
soft and warm bed for the squirrels to lay their heads.

Falling colors as a center piece,
on the table with flowers for Thanksgiving.
In a child's room hanging on the wall,
press between crayons and wax paper, a picture is hung.

Falling colors everywhere down a county lane,
tracks are covered trees are going bare.
Parents raking gathering in piles,
children laughing, jumping, scattering....
Falling colors everywhere.

Thanks Cheryl ! BIG hug

OK, you see where the "B" "I" "U" and all that at the top, go to the 15th icon, it will be the 2 squares a little square over laping the the big one, you go there first, once in there, go to "browse then when you picked the pic you want and you click on "host it" then click on the last "copy" where it says "up load" then you go to the icon next to that one it just has one big square, you click on that, click on the box, then press "ctrl" and "V" then click the OK....then vala ! Very Happy

Most of the pics I post with my poems I took...

Reminds me of walking along hiking trails in the Smoky Mountains. I could smell the fresh cool breeze and feel the leaves gently settling on my shoulders. Thanks for the journey in my mind, walking once more through my beloved mountains.
