Favorite Quote:
Humor is by far the most significant activity of the human brain.

Every thing starts, just as everything ends

But fall is a feeling that carries through

When I think of fall when trees grow anew

Seeing grass distort as land mends

The scars of winter left for plants to lend

The light snow dissolves and disappears to…

Earth, where it feeds the animals and grew

Green pastures of flower and corn to rend.

Fall is red, summer is green, what a sight.

Summer turns, fall begins, so restart…

The cycle of seasons, it does excite

Fall is the end of what it may impart

But with ends, come beginnings, so take height.

Don’t be a shrew, so recognize your heart.

The author's comments:
This is part of my trilogy on seasons. Most poets might portray spring as the period of renewal, but we love winter sports here so much, that fall is the true time of renewal before the snows of winter begin Southeast Alaska.
