When times have me feeling weak and weary
I know just where to go.
To the mountains I travel to make my life a little more cheery.
The crisp autumn air and the crunch of the leaves sound as I walk the crisp ground, easy and slow.
The colorful leaves make me feel at home and safe.
I search for new colors and shades as the season brings new things.
I enjoy the visualization of the coming winter.
I begin to forget my life and how it may hinder.
Falling leaves seem so insignificant,
But to me, they appear magnificent.
I take a good look at what's around me.
As I leave the mountains feeling I can finally oversee
The troubles life brings.
The leaves are my peace keeper.
For I am, the ultimate leaf peeper.
