The Colors of Life

Pz-avatarby Robert Niebuhr07 Mar 2014

As the sun lights up the woods

The leaves of fall speak of our lives thru the years

Green for birth

Yellow that records the growth from child to adult

Orange for the melancholy of loves lost but not forgotten

Red that mirrors the passions of the seasons

Russet for the wisdom acquired thru the ages

And then

Will the barrenness of the tree’s limbs

Result only in decay

Or shall we again witness

The coming of the gum drops

Each radiating the colors of fall

The mosaic of life
