Quaking Aspen

Yellow leaves flutter,
surrender to Autumn’s dance,
burnish the blue sky.

Branches stretching out
to tease a foraging quail
toss gold to the wind.

    In CA I would often go to a place called Quaken Aspen where the rustling of the leaves would entice me to spend the day. This poem brought back many warm memories. Thanks.

    I could almost hear the rustling of the leaves… and smell the sweet warmth of bark..
    Each and every word of this poem screamed Fall like no other! Delightful!
