Autumn’s Majesty

Red carpets of leaves

Gold falling all about me

Feel like royalty

A Golden Rose

Gold Rose

This little flower wasn’t in the garden of a queen,

Or even in a place where it might be seen,

Yet it was beautifully dressed,

Looking it’s best, as if blessed,

Bringing joy where it dwelt,

Sharing fragrance with any who smelt.

Oh that I, daily might try, to be

An affinity, in similarity.

Autumn’s Golden Leaf

Golden Leaf
The brisk wind opened 

Nature’s treasure chest 

Found a golden leaf

Placed it right in my path

To glitter in the sunshine

Tanka 

I was stopped in my tracks today by the sight of this leaf! It lay in the parking lot right by my car. It looked like it was painted with Gold Leaf Paint but it wasn’t. It was just a light brown leaf but the way the sun was shining on it it looked very golden Such an unusual sight. A pleasant surprise in my day. 😊
