The Golden River

IMG_20151022_122058541

One bright autumn day

I strolled along a waterway

Where the river curved and meandered

As contently, I walked and wandered.

Although shallow and quite low

Beneath the sun’s brilliant halo,

The stream displayed a calm vivid blue

As hardly a current rippled through;

Nature’s own reflective looking glass

Embedded between rocks and rust tinted grass.

And lo! An amazing glistening surprise

That met my wandering eyes;

As I peered across the aqua blue stream

to see a cluster of vibrant gold trees

Standing poised as their finely dressed branches hover

Over the tranquil and ever gentle river

Which mirrored in glorious reflection

A scene of equal and brilliant perfection

Of the trees crowned in leafy gold majesty

Glimmering in the water below my feet.

Such was the scene of blazing autumn gold

For my eyes and memory to grasp and behold.

I slowly continued my contemplative trek to the path’s end

And  reluctantly turned around to walk back homeagain.

And as I retraced my strolling steps,

I intently gazed so that I wouldn’t soon forget

This grand gift provided by peaceful nature;

A wondrous stroll along the Golden River.
