Autumn Voice

they stood along the riverbank
a haphazard line with no formality
arms turned toward the sky
they offer their gifts to the Gods
gold, rubies, precious metals of bronze and copper
 
with each gust of wind their song of worship is heard
like a million applause it echoes through the gray autumn sky
far up into the mountains and back again
 
the Gods of Sun, of Rain and Wind have been kind
their congregation,
once a whole
one voice, one color …….. screams out, individually
 
each of the million before me preaching their own words, their own praise
each their own
and I notice every one
………….. every single one!
 
Their sermon of color
of beauty
of earth
of life
of seasons beginning and ending
I catch my breath
 
I sit
I watch
I listen
