Kaleidoscopic Beauty

Gusty winds swirl crisp autumn leaves

Storm clouds gather overhead

Fading light, as the sun

Obscured, hides its glow

 

Definition dulled as misty rain

Blurs shapes and disguises beauty

Vibrant colours bleached

Washed out, muted

 

Sparkling beads hang from trees

Spiders’ webs glisten and shine

Droplets quiver then fall

Silently to the ground

 

Nature’s warm blanket lies sodden

Seeps into soil, flows into rivers

Reviving and nourishing life

Bringing new hope

 

Washed by rain, the earth shimmers

As golden rays highlight and intensify

Nature’s glorious colours

Of kaleidoscopic beauty
