Listen To The Wind
Author: Catyrose


As the autumn leaves
Fall feather-like to the ground
All has begun to change

Colors of green
Give way to bright red and yellow hues
Vibrant variations of natureís on-going theme
New beginnings in store

A transformation begins to take place
Inside and out
Beliefs once held true
Are tossed and twirled about

As Godís creation
Itís time to yield
To the natural process
Designed to heal and restore

Oh, to be nothing more than a leaf
Falling effortlessly to the ground
Free of earthly cares
Bound by burdens we humans create for ourselves

Higher beings create chaos
The natural world produces a sense of order
Her message is carried on the wind

Simplicity, mother earth offers us
She speaks to us of harmony
And love built on solid ground
Not shifting sands
Of trust built on her constant and predictable nature

There are lessons to be learned
Pause, go within
Listen ever so carefully to the message carried on the wind

One spectacular creation -- just flawless. Its tapestry is painted with visions of gold.
