Autumn Ornamentation

The Painter of the land
takes out His magic buckets
of scarlet red
golden yellow
bold orange
and some muted tones
of brown.
With a quick flourish of hand,
He garnishes tree and shrub
in every hill and dale.

In the twinkling of an eye,
He strokes the sky
with brilliant blues,
breathes soft ripples
on the shimmering lake.

Magnificent autumn ornamentation,
emblazoned only
by the omnipotent
Painter of the land.
