Vibrant gold

shines from the aspen

devils club and willows.

Preparing for the

official arrival of fall.

Yellow gold, in one tradition

the color of the 3rd chakra,

Our power, the seat of our ego.

Tera, dressing for fall in Alaska

also wears cranberry red

close to the ground.

The color of our root chakra:

safety and survivial.

Winter: dark hours lengthen,

dark bare trees, dark ground and waters.

Followed, with relief

by the white of a pristinely

snow covered world.

Spring bursts green,

sap and energy moving up.

Green: color of the heart chakra.

of young love and June weddings.

Green protecting the soft pink

at the core, underlying.

Tera moves majestically

into the flowering of

the blues, purples and indigos

of the throat, third eye and crown chakra

of the long light of deep summer.

Energy rising through us humans,

the sun’s love raining down.

We are each a pillar

connecting heaven and earth.
