Autumn in the Colorado Rockies

Autumn in the Colorado Rockies
Photograph taken on the Peak to Peak Highway,
between Estes Park, and Nederland, Co.

Shades of green and sage,

fading fast; they yield and turn

for the Aspens that brandish yellow

 golden jewels of Autumn

under a bright, September sun.

Colors shimmer on the pond,

their reflection mirrored back

 fill the canvas with shapes and hues

   of trees that shiver and soon will drop

those now crisp falling leaves

 yielding to the season’s weather,

they gather on the ground.
