An Autumn Fantasy

Arthur Gulumian

There exists a devotion far beyond my courage,

And a world that bends to an eternal will.

It is exceeded, yet ever clenched to my dreams,

A universe of absolution — an empire of certainty.

A tree is always near, and a song is never distant.

A road of gold and red horizons stretching across a wishful oblivion—

A solemn and comfort of fortune's sudden breeze,

And a kiss of an unseen hand guided by a sought journey.

What exists now if not a tempted mind?

A strive for solitude's company,

And a hunger for embraced immortality—

A soul is never begotten—

A word is always absent of resent and malice.

And my dream is now my Autumn Fantasy.

Eternal questions charmingly put...The permanence of nature, the assurance of it's continuity, gives comfort to our unsettled and insecure lives...Thanks Arthur, a most welcome reading over coffee this morning...Larry

Wesley thank you so much I really appreciate that. Summer's cool too (save the sunburns), but I always found something else in Autumn that is beyond common understanding.

I'm glad you enjoyed it Invictus, I really am. I write to open the minds of everyone to a world far beyond our own and I'm overjoyed that you had such an experience. Thank you.
