Tulip Trees in Fall

The tulip trees of spring are blooming
even though its autumn
a reminder of spring
one last time ~ before the cold of winter.

Just as the tart and tangy lemons
the luscious and sweet oranges ~ are ripe and ready
so too ~ do the tulips progress
on their path of fulfillment.

How beautiful is this day
clear and crisp
when nature is alive and glowing
bright in the clear autumn weather.

Would that I would never see the day
when all is peaceful and alive.
Bright and pungent is the light
that shines on this glorious day.
