Fall's Surprise

Flowing water dribs and drabs through round rocks ancient
Dropping, shifting, chilling my lower limbs close to discomfort's edge
Fall's sun pleasantly and lightly bakes my neck
A cacophony of wonderful competing sensations
This outdoor euphoria sets my mind adrift

All else - matters not

Can I just stay in this place?

Jolted awake by a splash, dried grasses fighting
Time's recovering flux brings slowly... reality
What's this?

A wet, yellow dog slaps playfully at Mr.Toad
Dozens of nature's presents lining her previously golden fur
A smile cracks

-Perfect moment.

  1. Some poetic verse seems appropriate at the advent of this poetic season--not bad at all! Keep wading, JQ
