it just happened.
i was finishing up the stuff
that i finish up for the evening.
and i looked out my living room window…
i couldn’t get over the beauty.
across the street.
behind my neighbor’s house.
in the woods.
there was a tree standing in the light
while everything else was in shadow.
i went outside and stood in my yard and just stared.
its entire trunk was a golden coppery brown glow.
the leaves just shimmered.
effortless and yet everything.
i have much to learn…
