A walk in fall woods leaves the poet with a sensual feeling of fullness and rest.
This poem appears on page 41 of Deborah's new book, The Nature of Life.


Red, orange, and yellow leaves

Flicker like flames

Brilliant against the saphire sky

Contrasting with the deep blue-green of conifers

 

Maple, birch, ask and oak have

Thrown off their chlorophyll gowns

Expressing the heat of passion they kept hidden all summer

To seduce my soul

 

I walk beneath them indulging my senses

Intoxicated by vivid color

The crunch of dry folliage beneath my feet

Earthy perfume all around

 

Their passion yeilds to exhaustion

Winds whirl withering leaves to the ground

Naked trunks and branches then lie still

As we wait for winter's white blanket to wrap us in slumber

Your your passion for autumn resonates with me. I long for those days I used to stroll through the trees under crystal blue skies. Our autumns are rather drab and warm. Nothing to write poetry about.

Ron
