Jenny Knipfer–Author

Writing to inspire, encourage, and enjoy

I saw the leaves fall today

I peered up

Down they came

Burnt sienna cigar twirls

Dancing in the crisp air

Against a morning glory blue sky

A million fairy wings

Flitting like silent insects

In the stillness

Against the background of a crow chorus

Leaves raining

Like a curtain of confetti

Littering the grass

Spread by the fingers of God


On a magically magnetic course

Destined for the earth

The journey of death

The story of the ages

Made beautiful by the promise of spring
