Autumn

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.

Albert Camus

The sun is bright

but not blinding,

coating the world

in a hazy afternoon light.

The orange and yellow leaves

drift gently to the ground,

and you are lost,

lost in the beauty

of the world around you.

You pause to think, only about

how lucky you must be

to live in this incredibly

wonderful world.

Happy autumn everyone!

Staring Out

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.

Henry David Thoreau

Staring out at the world

Through an airplane window

Landmarks minuscule

Houses microscopic

Admiring the colors

Contemplating the beauty

Discovering infinity

Forever and beyond
