Tuesday Night Ride 10/18

October 18, 2016


I’ve been dazzled these days as I go for a bike ride
A crazy kaleidoscope covers each hillside
But, wind rises, leaves fall,
We cannot forestall
This transition at all,
But some consequences leave me quite satisfied
Forest floor is afire, a blanket ablaze
Such colors will never cease to amaze
The carpeting covers the coarse corrugations
Accentuating sensuality of earth’s undulations
A scene we can savor through late autumn days

Each weave and wend brings new surprises

As darkness descends the moon rises
Where the woods were once black, I am taken aback
First a glimmer, a glimpse of the moon through the limbs
A full treetop profile, in contrasting, stark style
Etching exquisite patterns from just nature’s whims

The autumn is fleeting, it goes by so fast
Its splendor is glorious, but we know it won’t last
Gather joy from all phases before they have passed.

And gather joy from STAB’s Tuesday Night Ride through the fall fields and forests of Ascutney Trails, from the main trail head, 400 Ski Tow Rd. at 5:45.
