A Perfect October Day in Ohio

I looked up to see
the colors of life in my heaven,
the benediction of the waving leaves,
their gasp of flashy beauty
and reflection in the cooling waters.
I felt the rhythm of Earth,
constant and unchanging as
a breathing body or a turning season,
immutable as God's love.

Thank you for these images, Diane. I'm originally from Toledo, and Ohio will always be my home, though I've lived in several cities during the past few years.

This is the perfect way to start a Sunday morning -- the sense of tranquility & peace.

Writing from the "Road," as we head toward the Atlantic Ocean in our latest journey,
Geoff (and Eleanor, who says to her Biographer -- "write, write!" -- need to listen to the internal voice)

You live in Ohio?
Pretty pictures and warm words - I enjoy both. Thanks for sharing.
