A Sunday In Late September- Golden Leaves

This last Sunday's sunny, cold, and windy September day played over in my mind all through the week, and became this Autumn poem I share with you today.

Where the Sunflowers Grow

Wild sunflowers grow at the forest's edge.
Where a brisk wind blows,
Clouds scurry by,
Making ominous shadows across
The late September sky.

Autumn-Time

Beneath these weathered trees,
Time now is the measure
Of a shadow's length...
Days grow short and sunlight
Holds very little warmth.

Glorious Autumn

An early morning cold light
Sweeps the autumn sky,
Shattering the windblown clouds.
Through my windows, sunlight bursts,
Resounding like a choir's song...
This glorious Sunday dawn!

Golden on the Leaves

Under the branches of the forest
An autumn pathway
Leads through a cathedral of trees...
And here... the sun shines golden on the leaves.

In Closing

Shine through me my anthem of love,
As I as the Sunflower look Above.
Touch me gently with heart of Gold,
Make me coveted, true and bold.

For I look up at your shining face,
As We smile in sweet embrace.
My eyes just follow you with great love,
As you shine your heat from up Above.

Showing the seed that plants in ground,
With Autumn Muse now safe and sound.
Bringing all of Creation to shed leaves,
As they wear their hearts on sleeves.

I just look up at my loving One,
Who shows me life as the Golden Sun.
Turning me into its image with a Flower,
Giving me life with the Eternal Show.

Showing No More Darkness can keep our Love,
If my Golden One is not Above.
Tickling me gently to wake up,
Showing me use in life's giving cup.

With Tranquil settings through the trees,
Observing life's untold mysteries.
Giving me the guidance through life's way,
Leaving all with nothing to say.

Bringing in the promise of the truest love,
As you touch my seeds from up Above.
Planting them into the world around,
Showing the truth where love is found.

In fields of Gold that all look up,
While you smile and wink asking what's up.
I just smile back and show the Children of Life,
With smiling eyes showing I am the Wife.

Who spread the seeds all around the field,
Bringing about life and unending yield.
With love and uses that shows my heart,
I am Sunflower Eyes never to part.

Pulling the entreaty to bring in Life,
Showing the truth that ends the strife.
Where all of Creation now see the Love,
That is only destined for the One Above.

Who covers my body with brown and old,
Showing the truth that is Gold and bold.
With resplendence of life that is intricate,
Bringing in the magic that none dictate.

Filling me with vibrancy as I look in Eyes,
As you caress me gently with Energy Ties.
Looking at every move that from Dawn to Dusk,
As I sit and watch behind flowery Mask.

Pulling the fact that all now see,
This is the passion so deep within ME.
For I shed life if he isn't there,
Showing the truth resonating everywhere.

All come together to bring in the Sun,
Making all of Darkness in tears run.
For its only when I see my Gold Sun in the Sky,
Everyone sees my face in heavens up High.

Until then I am hidden drooping down,
Making all in darkness their sorrows drown.
For I am the Only One with Single Love,
Looking at the Creation shedding leaves Above.
