Autumnal Reflections

Autumn is here

It begins with brilliant-hued leaves

The smell of wood smoke

And cooler, crisper days leaving a chill in the air.

The early Autumn sun

Creates a shimmering green and gold sea

On Midwestern fields.

The golden sentinel of trees

That line the winding road

Of my path home,

The trees painted in every hue of red and gold,

Become an archway

With a multitude of autumnal colors

Dappled with sunlight

And aching for their beauty to be noticed

And embraced.

Winter is nipping

At Autumn’s heels

The fiery leaves that

Proclaimed the season

Now sadly litter the ground

As so much confetti after a New Year’s bash.

They skitter along the grass and pavement

A frenzied last dance

Before winter’s frost

Puts an end to the festivities.

I created this blog as a way to express myself using my poetry and photography. It is a reflection of who I am and of the things that interest me. I have many muses…perhaps the greatest one being my love of the sea, how I gravitate to anything relating to water, how I feel a pull toward it deep in my bones. At times I will be revisiting content that I have shared on Twitter which has, until now, been the forum I have expressed myself in. That said, the content will change over time as the blog grows and develops. It is my hope that the reader will enjoy the journey.

  2. Many comments to make here – first, this reminds me of my childhood home in New Hampshire. Second, I share your love for autumn, always something magical about the air, I remember. Third, your poetry journey fascinates me! From the sensuality of this scene of autumn to the physical sensuality of your more erotic poetry. Such differences, but both connected to a sensual living that is so appealing. Very nice poem.
