breathtakingly beautiful in its simplicity
the country road was strewn with Autumn leaves
seemingly untouched by walkers before me
as the boughs above welcomed me into their midst

a peace that passes understanding touched my soul

a moment of grace.
a place of joy
a special gift from the Creator and Mother Nature

may that peace
that grace
that joy

be revealed
in the coming days
