Just one look
is all it takes
the twinkling lights
my day to make

Whether inside or out
many or few
nothing brightens me
like they do

Still when I see them
the words appear
Christmas Lights
for all to hear

Doesn’t matter the color
or the kind
twinkling lights
they lift my mind

Whatever my mood
instant delight
with just one look
at the twinkling light


Yellow and orange bright red as if in fire

beautiful breathtaking valleys covered in fall

crisp morning air sun streaked skies

as if in unison the universe sighs

Color so vivid taken in each one by one

aspens cottonwoods colors of fall

painted in brush strokes strong and tall

a kaleidoscope for the eyes and the soul

Change and renewal the passage of time

colors to mark each turn of the day

following the seasons as in life

each moment a piece of remembrance

Colors to fill valleys paint mountains touch souls

the past and future meeting in a time honored dance

blending of time one season to a new

the colors of fall the colors of you
