Once a year fall


To paint the leaves



Every once in a while

Red and yellow to finish the masterpiece.

An Autumnal Palette


Once a year when her time comes,

Lady Autumn changes nature’s gown

To match with Persephone’s mixed feelings

Between enjoying life on the surface with her mother

And having to return underground

To her husband’s dark gloomy realm.

Green is the reminder of her connection with nature,

Red is the goddess’ love for Hades,

Orange is her impatience to return to the surface,

Purple are the chrysanthemums in Demeter’s garden,

Brown is the wisdom she gained after the horrible event,

Yellow is the happiness that mother and daughter

Feel when they are reunited in the season of rebirth.

What’s Behind The Wall?


Is the question the archeologist asked himself

When he reached the hidden temple.

As he thought of ways to break it,

An invisible force is leafing through his soul

Checking to see if his intentions were good or bad.

Tears of shame ran down the man’s cheeks

Thinking about the act he has to commit

To save the lives of the innocent held captive

In the tyrant’s dark underground rooms.

“Break the wall, take the valuables

And bring them to me before the fall equinox

Or you’ll never see your loved ones again,”

Were the words echoing in his mind.

He was about to give up and find another way

When he suddenly felt something in his hand.

He noticed a medallion with the following message

Engraved on it:

“Willpower and determination can break

Any wall that blocks your way.”
