The days are becoming shorter, but autumn's masterpiece is only just beginning....


 

Summer surrenders
To chilly autumn breezes
The solstice draws near!
 
Daylight hours fade
Into crisp nights that lengthen
As solstice deepens!
 
Wrapped in fall’s embrace
A stunning display descends
Upon the forest!
 
Flashes of gold
Intermingled with amber
Autumn’s masterpiece!
 
When the last leaf falls
Another solstice lingers
With an icy chill!

Admirable descriptions of falls abundance of color and falling leaves. Oh, to be located where I could see more of natures splendor. I would revel in the raked leaves, hugging them to myself.
Beautifully done, Anna.

And that second solstice is my birthday… I'm depressed already. Simply beautiful the way you have put these words together––like, autumn itself.

Great use of color to compliment an idea. Fall is a color riot. Great piece!
Reviewed by Mark Lichterman
At times, at this time of year, for a short time, oh, for maybe three weeks or so, I do miss the changing of seasons as you so colorfully depicted with your beautifully written words. I do miss the color of leaves and the chill in the air. But then winter's wind and snow comes and... Well, So Cal is a great place to be.
Your friend; Mark

Lovely, Anna. I wrote a poem using color for each word. I think I called it "Colorful Words." This is very good way to portray the changing of the season at this, a wonderful time of the year. Everybody likes spring, but to me the fall of the year is the best season, even if everything is dying, they are dying beautifully.
