AUTUMN

Summer draws to a close

As the mist gray skies hide the sun from my eyes

And the chilly Autumn breeze urges Summer to leave

I can’t help feeling as if a part of me is aging like the leaves.

“Autumn”

A time for lovers

To stroll down leaf-covered pathways

And nestle snugly in each other’s arms.

Indeed,

Autumn is a time for lovers;

“Autumn”

This time of year brings with it memories

Long thought dead;

When my heart was aglow
And the leafs were blown
Our two became one.

Years have birthed,
Grown old then died;
Yet, every twelve months this feeling thrives inside.

A Phantom . . .
A haint,
Intruder of sorts.

Welcomed aberration
reminds me of my hurt;

As the skies grow constantly gray,
And my aspirations have cause to sway;
Still I thank my Lord for this
Autumn day.

For just as the night makes way for day
Fate has ordained it, Autumn must pass away;

And so shall pass dead memories of unforgotten dreams that push their way to reality when the lights of my mind grow dim.

Autumn Is the time for Lovers.
Autumn is the tree,
And we like the tree
Must battle winter winds;
And dream of youthful green
Born in the spring.

And just like the tree
Once a year we say –
“Fly away pain;
Blow away hurt”.

As we trample past memories mingled in life’s dirt.

And again I say,

Autumn
Is a time for lovers;
to dream,
But still I feel a part of me
is blowing in the wind.

  14. Tangled but interesting. Autumn’s a hard theme to explore sometimes because it’s so archetypical; everyone’s written about it.But you’ve got several fresh images and some nice almost-rhymes, as well as a complicated structure going on. Enjoyed it.
