Fall Appreciation poem



Vibrant green leaves change their colors to burgundy, gold, brown and orange in remembrance of yesterdays’ summer nights.

Almost as if they were mimicking the beautiful sun set that covered the evening sky

in honor of

In remembrance of

Now it is time for Fall.

The leaves gently break away from the tree that nurtured them graciously.

And the tree misses those leaves but remains standing gracefully.

Old wise tree, please teach humanity how to handle loss so resiliently. So beautifully.

Teach us how to let go without a storm

Teach us how to love unconditionally

Help humanity understand letting go is like

breathing. It’s up and down and should

happen effortlessly.
