The Coming of Fall

The air more crisp
Summer set adrift
Back out to the deep sea


Seasons slip into the next
Not always a dramatic shift
Slight autumn sights may be missed


Fall wakes the overheated doldrums
His intentions to stir hearts gone cold
Make the pliable enough to mold


We avoid, try to escape
All the while He waits
And pursues, never losing track of you


I stood still on my walk
Under the leaf roof
Knowing soon, green would be aloof


His wind across my face
Preparing me to receive His grace
He knows I need to find my place


Browns, golds, intense orange
The breath of heaven
Preparing for death


Daunting though beautiful
Withering, shrinking
Vitality slipping


Nature’s way
Avoiding the icy fray
Some hide, some divide, some die


Whatever lies before us
Before we walk, Let us surrender,
lay down our weapons

Complaining and drunk carousing
Hate surmounting
Where is hope?


He is here
Preparing us for another season of the year
He knows your pain, your fright


May you call on Him
Under a cool moon this very night
All who do will be saved


Another day of life well- lived
Another smile meant to give
His love an eternal free gift


Not earned Just yearned
In the hearts of men and women
All whom He created


I welcome Him
As autumn blows in
I pray for you to receive Him


For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13).

If you are going to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior or have done so recently, hallelujah! I ask that you contact a pastor or someone else you trust in the faith to share with them and seek counsel. We and His angels celebrate when a new believer says Yes! to Jesus. Then, life begins to change ALL for the good. Sometimes, the journey is not easy, and you need guidance and a Bible.

If you have any questions about Jesus, feel free to email me at

    1. Hi Tony! So good to hear from you, brother. Yes, I will probably post more poems about Fall. It’s my favorite season. I will tell Jason you gave him the best you got today. He is working as I type. Thank you for your kind words about the poem. I appreciate it, Tony, but Jesus is the true poet. In Christ, Julie
