Gifts of Gold

This fresh appearance
of golden arches flowering
signals summer ending,
autumn approaching,
September aging.

Gracefully curving

above stiff stalks
of bunched leaves,
tiny towers topped
with yellow flame.

Admired, desired,
gathered in a vessel
labeled “gifts of gold”
the comfort of memories
to keep, to hold.

    We also had a wonderful time at your lovely place. Thank you for the gracious hospitality from you and B.

    We are well into the color season here in SW Michigan. I am out with my camera nearly every day, attempting to capture a fragment of God's glory that I find in nature.
