A Fall Poem

In the change a quiet song plays
Washing water blankets early autumn notes
A colorful display played through these hills
The wind it cools new life old
In a minute the song plays out
As the colors fall from their lofty perch
A reflection into unwritten things
Takes me home, brings me peace

  7. Great poem Sanders. I love the smell of fall time. I always enjoy being able to wear a sweatshirt again when fall arrives. Let's not forget about Halloween. Love to eat all of my kids candy :) Tight Lines.

  18. Ivan- I can't wait to see some of those big Montana browns you video chucking those fancy streamers of yours...I will be spending some time at the vise myself, twisting a few of the big bugs up for exactly the same reason...

    Thanks!
