A Glowing Carpet of Ferns

Ablaze in the low sun
before their dying
translucent yellow
thin brown page
standing at attention
catching the light just right
casting living shadows
atop the pine litter
the coming of winter
soon enough slumber
before the blanket of snow

“I am in awe of how in the final days of their existence,
the bright colors of leaves create a glow amongst
the gray of the morning. hmmmm, something to think about.”
