I do love the Autumn colours…
Nature has its own beauty.
I wrote a poem about autumn…
searches through my poem collection in my documents folder….

Aha i found one of my Autumn poems and it’s quite a deep one, which is about the cycle of Life and seasons…
Take a Gander >>>>>

Poem Title: Mother Earth~Autumn Autumn, has wrapped us in her blanket Each leaf, fallen from a tree… Depicts a moment in our lives,that has slipped on by I have never known, the time to fly…. As now ; At mid-age of a lifetime Why is it, that we reach for a falling leaf? Is it to capture, that lost youth? Kicking our feet, through the heaps of crisp autumnal foliage The rustling sound, brings comfort to our senses Inhaling that aroma,which brings back to us… …The memories of autumns past Too soon, the mass is mulch and becomes unsightly So too, the years of wrinkles ; Our excused laughter lines Trees become bare ; As do our arms of loved ones Need, is not a word that comes to mind Fortitude is the key to realism Our children grow up, before our eyes Once fragile seedlings, are now thriving trees Branches stretch out but fledglings nest further away Distance the enemy… Separating us, from our Loved ones Time moves along briskly, with the seasons… Born into Spring… Which season, will be my last ? When my time is up…. Mother Nature, can take me, into her depths To nourish the seedlings, of the earth… As i once nurtured my young, at my breast Take me in my sleep… I admit to being scared, of taking my last breath Heaven or Hell ? We’ve all done Right and Wrong Those of us, that learn by our mistakes… Live again in Heaven? Evil goes to where they feel at home Birth and Death Beginning and End Here comes The Season of Winter….
