I feel fall's chilling breath

on my skin,

as summer's warm breath
leaves to come another time;
as autumn brushes
these vibrant colors.

 

I see autumn leaves
peeling off from the street
and filling the evening night
with their whispering,
as dawn's light
leaves and comes
another day to burn.

 

See the leaves
dance in the fall breeze,
as they take wing
and sing

and laugh
with the evening stars?

 

Despite that they fell down
and that they were
on the ground,
they still fly
as the wind catches them
and cushions
their fall.

 

Watch the stars
open up their light,
as dawn blushes
and as night paints,
the light from
a million years ago.

 

Because this is a sight ---
a sight to behold.
Something that we must hold
as memories;
for it's a gift,
as we watch fall's leaves
drift to the sky.

Autumn is here. My friend Autumn only comes once a year. She loves to dress up in vibrant colors and dance under the stars, with the wind blowing. She also, loves to sing with the stars too. ;) Haha, fall is here and has fell. Fall has fallen in my part of the world. ^_^ I hope ya'll enjoy it, and that it makes sense. Thank you for taking the time to read it. ^_^

Haha, thank you. :) Also! I understand what you mean, and I can connect. I lived in a place, for many years, where there was no fall or winter. So, I can connect a lot. :) Thank you so much, again, my friend!

Living in a place with no Autumn (or Winter, for that matter) doesn't give me much imagery to look back on. To me, these seasons are just there, and not... here. But this poem brings the concept of Autumn to life, to the point where I myself can actually picture it. It becomes reality to me. Great use of personification and, especially, amazing use of imagery :)

Thank you, so much! :) Haha, autumn is beautiful season and I am glad that I get to see it. I love all seasons.

Autumn is my absolute favorite season, and you've managed to capture the very essence of it in a lovely poem. The lines "as dawn blushes and as night paints" are especally poetic. You're a terrific writer and I look forward to reading more of your work!

Thank you, so much, my friend. I'm so glad, that you enjoyed it. :) Haha, I love fall too. :) Fall is absolutely, beautiful and phenomenal for me to experience. Because for ten years, I had never seen fall, but now I can see fall. We live in a chaos-y wolr, but haha. We live in a beautiful world, too. Thank you again, my friend. :)

This is beautiful! I can feel the leaves brush up against my skin, chilling me. Great way of putting the masterpiece of the world into words! I love fall sooooo much :)
