Suddenly Silent

Trails stretch on before me
I wander through the silence
Sounds of leaves caressing trees
replacing those of violence.
Ground gives perfect camouflage
To hide a basking snake
I savor each last summer breeze
That autumn soon will take.
Summer sun and growing shade
Combine for day’s perfection
Crossing bridges crudely made
to capture its reflection.
