    It's always at this time of year that I
    remember that tree, and how it
    turned a bright red, a brillant red,
    in the Fall...
    It was next to one that turned very yellow,
    and I would sit at the window and stare
    at them, as though I could
    see the colors deepening.

    Ironic that such beauty represents
    such sadness, or so I thought,
    as the days got uglier everyday,
    and more leaves fell to the ground,
    surrendering to the evil cold.

    Spring is a distant memory,
    the promise of potential the new buds had,
    gets taken for granted as we played all summer
    in the shade of our giant guardian.
    In the fall, before it's chilling sleep
    this burst of color is the final hurrah,
    like a smile before death, signifying
    the joyous celebration of a life well spent,
    living to the fullest.

    Remember that tree?
    Everytime I see a brillant red in the Fall,
    I am that child at the window,
    marveling at the colors
    that came back to thrill me once again
    this time of year.

    :wave: Haaaaaaaaaaay Andre98 :wave:

    So good to see you back in the house, to be reading you again!

    Such a beautiful peace. Way down here in Alabama the seasons
    don't change as dramatically as in other parts of the country.

    Thanks for letting the leaves turn colors for me today.

    :heart:

    I have a tree - deep red in the fall - that I often reminisce on, so many lessons we can learn from a tree...
