Autumn Portrait

Barrage of colors forming halos:
Golden leaves neath golden sun.
Fall canopies of fiery orange.
Spectators find them quite fun.

Leaves of yellow, lime, and rust -
Interspersed with points of light:
Autumn rays a glistening,
Shining through with much delight.

Nature's portrait, wowed by men -
Painted by such skillful Hand:
Every stroke meticulously
Guided by Divine command.
