The Autumn Leaf - A SacrificeThe Autumn Leaf
By Joseph (Methos) Mercurio
Autumn is beautiful; it is all about death and the act of dying. The leaf changes its color when it dies, to reveal a beautiful new one. Then when it falls it gently dances and ballets to the ground. I wish I could die like that. To die and give a new color, to give happiness, to give my remaining life to the tree, to then fall gently, quietly, and gracefully to the ground. So when people think of me they will not think of the sorrows, but of what I gave. People look at leaves thinking how beautiful they are, they remember them for that, not the fact that they died to create such happiness, and they just remember the feeling.

The Voice of God
By: Joseph (Methos) Mercurio
The voice of God is the rays of sunlight bleeding through the clouds.
The voice of God is the afternoon sun sinking in the horizon.
The voice of God is the silence before the storm, and the thunder during it.
The voice of God is the gentle pit pat of rain hitting the ground.
The voice of God is the wind blowing across the plains and turning the old windmill.
The voice of God is the gold grain, which rustles in that wind.
The voice of God is the autumn leaf who falls and dances gently to the ground.
The voice of God is the lone hollow in the forest where all animals are at peace.
The voice of God is the cool shadow, which the tree casts.
The voice of God is the Northern Lights who light up the gentle falling snow.
The voice of God is the way tall pines speak among themselves.
The voice of God is the ocean waves roaring at the shore.
The voice of God calls out to us, but do we hear?
The voice of God calls out
