October evening skies,
Indigo clouds painted on turquoise blue,
Pink trails of airplanes heading west,
Reminding me of you.
Golden leaves on the willow tree
While the forsythia gleams russet red.
Yellow chrysanthemums beneath
Brightening up the autumn flower bed.
A solitary bird sings his song,
Filling the silence of the evening tide.
A yellow rose blooms on the bush,
Reminding me of another time.
Still you are here.
You are everywhere,
In the skies, the birdsong, trees and flowers.
October evening skies
Filling my heart with happy hours
