I tried to capture the beauty of an Autumn ride and made these notes a few months ago.
A rustic, weatherworn, gray shack
With a bright red door.
A sun-glistening brown horse
Plays with the buttercups
Pink and charcoal clouds float
In a haint blue sky,
Looking like their arms are crossed.
Later, riding home
The sky, honey-apricot.
Black clouds scud like ravens,
Over the orange-scarlet colors of the sumac leaves.
