A new poetry attempt. I composed this in my head on a long road trip to my aunt's the other day. It was a gorgeous fall day with bright sunshine, I was driving, and hubby and I were just silently enjoying the scenery. I wrote down a rough draft when we stopped at a Cracker Barrel restaurant for lunch. Thought I'd share it with you and hope you enjoy it. :)

Sharon Prater-Pope (10-25-12)  

Stirred, then shaken by the wind,
Leaves glide on invisible wings,
And fall like multicolored glitter
In the bright sunshine.  

Scarlet, bronze, golden flecks mingle,
As trees undressing for winter
Leave a multi-colored blanket
Covering the hibernating earth.
