Tree in the Autumn Court: It’s Autumn
by Sister Mary Christa Kroening, OSB
Moses led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”(Exodus 3:1-3)
In the wanderings of Moses
There were sights he’d never seen
A season he did not know
He came upon a flaming red-orange bush
What could it be?
Could it be fire, burning red-orange-yellow?
It was confusing to this poor fellow.
