Like Ethereal Puffs Of Fleeting Wisps

I love the Autumn season which John Keats describes as ..The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness ... these are my thoughts on this lovely time of year ......

I Love Autumn



Of all the months and seasons I love best I have to admit that Autumn is my favourite ...

I love the richness of the changing colours of the leaves with their glorious golds and russet colours that fill the senses with beauty .....

Perhaps I also love it because I was born in October , so maybe that holds a special place in my life , as I love birthdays ....

By the way ...Happy Birthday Terry ....whenever it is in September ...

Have a very special Day my dear Friend ....

Blowing Kisses To The Autumn Leaves



Subtle breezes whispering through the closing summer boughs -
Blowing kisses to the Autumn leaves - as if to say - ' tis time to make
Your farewell speech for yet another year - but never fret - for you are
Captured in the hearts of man as something beauteous - that brings with
It such memories sweet - to captivate the soul - as now you lay unclothed
In swathes of golden beauty - at
His feet.

A Splash Of Red Across A Darkening Sky




This is the softening of the dreaded changes that must come - for
Those who know the seasons and their differing climes - as with an
Artist's brush - who steals a splash of red across a darkening sky - as
If to show it mellowed - so as not to cause impending fear of changing
Light - as sunsets ease us - with their glory - into each new coming
Cooler night .

Like Ethereal Puffs Of Fleeting Wisps



Though chilling winds may one day follow in your wake - you
Need not fear - for you will soon be gone - but not forgotten - as
The mantle changes at the closing of another year - when breath -
Like ethereal puffs of fleeting mists - begin to form - in throats
Exposed now to the cooling air - and early
Misty morn .

In Exhilarating Flight



So clap your hands with joy - you leaves of summer past - and
Exchange them for a different gown - of splendid russet hues of
Gold and reds and brown - and like a diver from the sky - for that
Brief moment in exhilarating flight - let go - and dance with wonder -
And sweet ecstasy - before you finally alight - at last unfettered and
Completely free.

Like A Diver From The Sky




I have a very dear friend who is normally very quiet and quite shy ...but recently she went Skydiving and I have never seen her so happy ..... she loved every moment of it..

It was her jump that inspired this Autumn poem ...as when I see the beautiful leaves falling from the sky it reminds me of my friend ....

She was willing to jump and be free... and her face was radiant with joy .....and that made me very happy too.

God bless you all this Autumn time

Stella to me there is nothing more beautiful then a poem inspired by a memory...this poem flows from a trio of such- the joy of a friend the history of Keats and the wonder of Autumn past and present...but most of all from your creative art so very rare and most wonderful!!!...absolutely stunning...bravo my dear friend-:0)....

the sadness descends on all humans ...
but these two cases were different..
they were indirectly known and
both were in their own way fairly young..
their lives had yet not really begun

Stunning images with verse and words complementing them, Stella - or is it the other way? I am in tropical Asia but with poets like you spreading the cheer I do not miss the seasons in all their glory! siva

You are too kind sweet hen ...but I graciously accept your kindness as I trust you would tell me were it otherwise .However I cannot take credit for the beautiful scenery of this lovely season , but only be very grateful that I can be one of many who can capture in words its beauty for all to share .
God Bless you dearest hen
