' IN THIS AUTUMN OF THE YEAR

In this Autumn of the year there be image
Pictorial earthtone's.....the artist's nirvana
Flecks of shades....bleed into each spray
Summer's closure.....sets on the causway

In this Autumn of the year there be breeze
Whisps feather past red cheeks 'n lobes
In contrast to the gusts.....of Winter's sting
Autumn flails its limbs...like colored wings

In this Autumn of the year, there be rainfall
A subtle, chilling mist.....that feeds the soil
Preparing, for the fast confronting Harvest
Showerings fall like angel-hair........tingling

In this Autumn of the year..... there be spice
A vast potpouri.....of kaleidoscopic majesty
Herbs 'n hickory smoke, from chimney tops
Country fairs and downtown sidewalk stops

In this Autumn of the year there be romance
Love that flowers in bond, of Soul and Spirit
Spirits of October....... Souls of Hallows Eve
Cornucopia of nature that's what Autumn be

    How can one not see the beauty in mother nature, you bring it to life, its a beautiful poem, thanks for giving grace to those of us that often are blinded by our own internal blinding sight.

    What a beautifull write filled with so much color and imagery.. I am not a fan of the fall, it depresses me and always has, however you bring so many beautifull colors to mind, and show the reader a new season is yet around the corner! Excelelnt...

    Despite suffering seasonal depression, Autumn has always been my favorite time of the year...to have a hot mug of cocoa and read poetry like yours makes the coming of winter tolerable...beautiful and eloquent capture of a season...Coach

    Oh, my, my, my, this takes me back to the 1800s writers. How they would dine with you to converse about your detailed work. I wouldn't even doubt some of the great writers from that era praising your work. The reason why I say this is because I love the writings of the 1800s. They have left me at awe all the time. This is what I say about yours, you stand with the MASTERS.

    A cornucopia of delicious autumn images filled with flowing music. Highest respect.
