“Autumn Poem”

“North Carolina Stream”, watercolor, janekohut-bartels, 2008



The chilling rains

Have blasted leaves

From black-barked trees.

Too soon has this happened

Thinking there would be yet time.


Time to marvel

At Nature’s robust palette,

To fill the eyes and senses

With ethereal beauty

No man-made tints can challenge.


But like most of life

We are behind

And lose out to clockwork

Not of our making.
