October Blues



October blues appear out of sync amidst the brilliant reds and golds
watching the leaves change as this heart remains heavy and cold.
Fiery burning colors, so bright they make my head spin
while my eyes smile at the show, my heart refuses to join in.
This time last year, snapping pictures with childlike abandon
dashing from tree to tree from river to mountain to canyon.
That child has been banished, her spirit broken and blue
running from memories that whisper; girl, it was never true.

Jeanne Marie, 2016

Three Nights

It is amazing to see the changes in the same piece of sky. I run out after supper each night, camera in hand,  just to see what He has painted this time! I think He used cotton candy for the last two pictures.
