An Autumn Fantasy

Updated on November 22, 2010

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.

      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.

      This poem is very nice Arthur, you have a gift man. My dream is of a summer fantasy though.

      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
