By J Ann Crowder

Hearts beating their final round—last leaves clinging to sustenance
Spring gullies dipping into nature’s pixie dust—miracle growth
Nigh, approaching the inevitable fall
’Tis a beautiful fate!
Wooded gardens I admire
A flowering of aspen trunks beholden to acknowledging eyes—they, gypsies touching a seascape of twighlight sky
To this end I seek her wonder
A metaphorical teacher—nature exploding upon a globe of wild beings and magical terra firma, illuminated by colorful light of poppies splashing my chin orange and yellow
Closer still, withal my tomb
Ivy climbing my gate, decorating my home where bold roses dash solemnity, pushing life’s dullness into an evaporation of sweet extinction

@Vic: Thank Vic! He was brought back three times by the EMT’s and was in critical condition. God did not want to take him yet because only 3% survive the type of head injury he had. He not only came back out of it, his speech&memory did to

Like the last leaf on the oak you caught, bright orange with yellow patches and glimpse/trace of life you see still flowing in its greenish
veins seem to say... I am here ready for my after life fate to give a new life to others, help nourish them, me as a compost. Such “sweet extinction” into new wonders of nature!
Love. Thank you dear Jenifer. I am sure you had a lovely wonderful Thanksgiving Feast with the people you love and love you.

Thank you! I did have a good Thanksgiving, and I hope you did too. However, my dad had a stroke today. Thinking of him now. He has been the anchor in my family. He is also bleeding on the brain because as his stroke happened he fell. So, he is in critical/serious condition right now. Now, all my memories of my dad have surfaced. I realize now more than ever how lucky I have been to have such a wonderful father in my life.

@J Ann Crowder : I am truly sorry to hear this sad news. Praying for him to recover some comfort and Godspeed. I appreciate your sharing this with me, makes me feel truly appreciated knowing you are comfortable with me.
Just last month I lost my younger brother, taken away by a massive heart attack helping a friend in a wheelchair. Like your Dad my brother fell and hit his head on the concrete walk. He died on the spot.
Be stronger than ever Jenifer for your sake and your family.
Praying for you as well. Love you. And yes I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank you.
