Driving through a cavern of colour,
Unwittingly watching my life change as the leaves.
For all the times I drove that highandlowway,
Never did I see it so profoundly as that day.
I wanted to believe in God.
That’s how beautiful and moving was the experience.
Knowing that I had answered two key questions
Certainly, for once.
Too long waiting,
But finally the answers.
And with them god-food:
Cajun smoked salmon from the best.
To make a loving dish for someone special,
A Friend so dear, means so much.
The cadence of quiet, the rhythm of soft.
The leaves’ brush of love.
