There is a scientific reason

why the leaves change

from green, to red and orange

to make a tree blaze with color.

There is always a reason

scientific or otherwise

yet all I want, is to look

to gaze upon the fiery colors

to sit quietly watching nature

the geese in perfect formation

flying overhead, honking along

squirrels scampering under oaks

gathering what the trees give

preparing for the winter cold.

All I want is to sit out

breathing in the cool air

not concerned about the why

but reveling in the why not

taking in the moments

of change that mark the journey
