surrounding us is the sound of wind in the deep forest

rustling the autumn leaves — hurrying them to their death

quietly they take their place upon the moss-covered earth

 as our senses absorb them in an awe-inspiring breath






they fall–there within their colors deep

red ruby piercing through the brown decay

lemon yellow tickling the mood

apricot orange is on display as our eyes walk on their way


bleeding heart berries bowing to us

white pine needles shedding their dress

the evergreen calls for our vigilance

while quietly tufts of grass are being laid to restIMAG4356

    I forget how bright the colors of autumn are in Wisconsin. Last week when my daughter visited we were at the beach! So easy to forget. Thank you for sharing that wonderful color. Your grandbabies are adorable too! ❤

    Hi Ms. Johann.

    This is Colin Stuart… I was in your 7th or 8th grade english class back in Pewaukee. Was poking around my facebook and noticed you’ve deactivated your account there. If you want to talk or catch up I’m up for that.
