Autumn & Jack

370833143_436abd9911

I’ve heard in the winds
whispers that Autumn,
is leaving us soon..
I found her leaves
laying  gracefully
across the country road.
Like making a dare
For me to cross the line
and disturb them.
Jack frost has been,
courting her nightly now.
Bringing her beautiful diamonds
on early morning trays
of trailing  light.
They dance benieth sunsets
and slow moving fog..
His icy hands touch
places that summer
has yet to let go..
Jack loves her you know…
But i’ve been watching
(Each day she is  fading. )
her colors seem to be
losing their bright
youthful attire..
Autumns last days
are here.
She’s saying
goodbye…

  4. Hi Connie,
    I tried to get registered on flikr the other day to comment on this, which I saw there, and the reg. process nearly drove me round the bend – I gave up in the end.
    Anyhow, I love the image and poem, and I’m sory you don’t use your site on user-friendly old wordpress much anymore – maybe you could park a bit of your recent work here for the flikr-allergic minority like me!
    Best wishes
