Autumn's Colorful Canvas

Autumn's stage is set
Autumn's stage is set
another sweet Fall day
another sweet Fall day
A quiet Fall evening
A quiet Fall evening
Solitude in the Autumn
Solitude in the Autumn
a past year's reflection
a past year's reflection
Beauty of Autumn
Beauty of Autumn

To Autumn


Once more I gaze at distant skies,

to see the majesty of a far tree line,

Now I am granted yet another year,

the beautiful times it brings to mind.


Beyond clouds, sets an evening sun,

as another fine day has made its run,

It shows the world new hope has begun,

while it sets the stage for another one.


Reds and yellows all set upon the stage,

as eyes of wonder and voices all rage,

A beauty displayed before Winter's call,

a lovely picture portrayed in each Fall.


The fine memories we all have shared,

In another moment of our fondest years,

The grand times we have seen to pass,

through all the laughter and the tears.


While leafy streets endure a cooling wind,

flights of wild geese on journeys to begin.

A golden moon lights up the evening skies,

as a lonesome Loon, by the lakeside cries.


I wear my warm coat to prepare for it all,

for it's my favorite of times, in every Fall.

God's graces are shone in each new year,

granting the joys for us to see and to hear.

Beautiful, Whonu. I love the Fall. Unfortunately, it's still hot here in Central Florida. I'm eagerly awaiting the cool breezes and low humidity!

Fall is one of my two favorite seasons…spring is the other. Your poem brought to mind many of the reasons why I love how the earth begins its prelude to a winter sleep and await the stirrings of spring. Beautiful words, photographs, and paintings. Voted up and across the board. :-)
