Autumn Leaves

First, you turn wicked shades of red
Deep oranges intermingled with
Beautiful, bright, bursts of brilliant yellow--
A permanent sunset cascading
    from mountain high
    to valley low.
Of colors, rich with ripened wisdom
Grown from branches older than time.

Then, in the frost of chilled winds
You wither,  shrivel away and rot--
A masterpiece lost to the world
Well-wished whispers whisked away
     walked over with heavy feet
     stamped and buried in thick soil
And forgotten in the nakedness
Of crooked branches erected high.

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
