Autumnal Ball

 

Autumnal Ball

 

sun dappled shadows gambol on the ground,

swaying branches ablaze with muted colors.

Earth Goddess Gaia laughs,

shimmering translucent mirth.

she shakes her head tossing her hair,

as leaves tumble in a madcap free-fall

cavorting gaily in the swirling gusts of wind!
