Fall Flowers


I was amazed, late this afternoon to walk into the living room to see a bouquet of flowers lit by a single ray of sunlight, as if it were lit by a spotlight for a professional photograph. I snapped a few pictures during the brief moment of magic, and this one is my favorite.

A single ray shone
into the darkened room.
Fall flowers came to life,
erasing any gloom.


Colors danced, in place,
to nature's Autumn song:
atoms in a trance,
inviting us
to dance along.
