    Light falls on wild dreams, I love the mountains in fall, the colors and crisp air. It seems a bit dreamy for sure.

    Lovely poem. I found this piece to have a dream-like aura about it.

    I really like the gentleness of the internal rhyme in your poem, Matthew. I’ve never been to New England but I have seen the beautiful landscapes of trees in autumn in films and television programmes. I especially enjoyed the lines:

    ‘The crisp of
    A New England day…’

    ‘Beauty that quakes .’..

    A stunning capture of a bronzed trail. I especially enjoyed the leaves as memories and the ending

    SMiLes.. now..
    of course i have
    no idea who you
    are.. but at 50 when..
    i thOught my youth was
    over.. something as simple
    for the literal minded me then..
    as a new science of Neuroplasticity
    and Epigenetics convinced me that now
    the limits set by averages were the averages
    of statistics set by a culture of lEarned functional
    disability in aging early vs.. beyond the cat who leaps
    long distances now at age twenty.. simply ’cause he or
    her has met the challenges of the call of the wild now to
    than the
    cats of bEfore..
    Youth Never leaves
    my friEnd with the now
    power of Believe and yes..
    more importantLy the realiTy
    oF jUSt doing iT moRE and
    waiting on no one
    ya for
    And trUe this
    miGht be heARd as
    BS.. iF i did not document
    the whole entire journey
    of 3 years.. 60 to 70K
    photos.. and still
    4 million
    42 months
    total for witness
    of this hiGher poWer
    oF NatUre gifted in US
    for HUman potenTial that
    iS real as 1000 beautiful girls
    simply smiling ear to ear wiTh
    a Dance oF i.. @56 with more energy
    in Empirical reaLiTy noW as evidenced
    than a 16 year old school kid.. mY FriEnd..
    the Heaven and the Fountain of YoutH lives
