Autumn on the Water

Cool breezes over me flow;
Choppy waves dance below.
I sit in a bright blue cradle, floating
Free as the heron soaring.

Hillsides glow with autumn fire,
Leaves of red, yellow, orange, to the spire.
Soon they will fall,
Revealing bony fingers reaching tall.

I am in autumn’s lee;
What has will never again be.
What will is still ahead;
A mystery, a thrill, a curiosity to be fed.

Paddle slicing dancing jeweled waves,
Keel turning-gentle and brave.
Sunfish rises from depths below
And splashes a hello.

To his hello, À la prochaine;
Goodbye to the water, the heron;
To the moment that was mine,
And onward to what is more than just fine.

Hmm...about me. Well, if you were to meet me in person, you would likely say I am quiet, reserved, maybe a tad shy, introspective, aloof, maybe even snobbish. Those who take the time to know me, find that I am someone who loves to talk one-on-on with others, enjoys hearing about people's life journeys, encourages others and easily gets lost in dreams. I am a writer and author with lots of ideas, but little time. I am mom to two awesome teenagers who are my inspiration each and every day, and a crazy rag doll cat named Hobbs. Most importantly, I am a child of God and will be eternally grateful for His working in my life. Thanks for stopping by!
