  October's Child


From colors on my canvas with time I see
Strands of Spanish moss in wisps of grey
Etched in shadows against the limpid bay
The sweet tranquil silence whispers to me


Seldom Rest Plantation lingers in the background
With its interlacing shades of Southern charm
Just beyond the bend lies Thistle Dew Farm
Layered leaves of crimson, bronze, and brown


Sumatra offers quietude in a gracious sort of way
Crickets provide an echo of their farewell call
An autumn moon dips low as it glazes over all
With its fragile touch on this another day


Black Creek is sprinkled in sun-drenched beams
Wrapped in cozy days and ethereal wings
A lullaby of frogs and the old porch swings
Apalachicola, cold rivers, and babbling streams


It is with pleasure that I dedicate this poem to Kathy, Sunshine 12, and her silvered-haired honey.
