Glorious autumn dawn kisses the ground,

Gold gossamer like sunshine floods the streets,

In glowing halo the treetops are crowned,

With colourful splendour the autumn greets.


Promise of winter chill hangs in the air,

As a harbinger of late autumn's tears,

Yet life's throbbing force still felt everywhere,

Whilst cool air 's heralding that winter nears.


A light breeze rises, like whisper in air,

Touching my forehead and kissing my face,

Playfully, tenderly ruffling my hair…

It is like receiving your gentle embrace…


In the autumn breeze your whisper I hear…

…How dare the sun shine? …You're no longer here…

I love this... it so perfectly describes my emotions of grief. I always wonder how the world can go on, like nothing happened, while my heart inside is breaking and grieving the loss of my mother, my son...etc.

beautiful and sad at the same time
a kiss in the wind
for the love that use to stand there
Reviewed by Kimmy Van Kooten I can feel your words here, Peter!
You express and touch the exact part of many who have been left behind, from a love that had no right to be taken away, especially...
My prayers are with you and yours...this is So powerful!

Keep your eyes and ears open, your heart and feelings, soft, and your taste for continued life, always...
God be with you!
Love and Peace~

Truly beautiful words of sorrow that pierce the heart with the purity of spirit that gives them birth.

Reviewed by Ed Matlack
Yes, Peter, this I am quite sure was a hard one to write but a wonderful memory of your passed loving wife...Find Peace, Ed, Rene & Rufuz (w00f)

Truly a wonderful sonnet, Peter. The imagery serves to enhance the emotions and the meaning put forth via your verses. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and blessings to you,

Reviewed by Karen Palumbo
A most wonderful piece with expressions of lonliness and dispair. They say time heals all wounds, but sometimes I wonder. Have faith and your heart will heal, remembering the good and setting aside the hurt. A most profound piece....

Be safe,
Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner

Your great loss powerfully expressed in heartbroken lines...I'm so sorry. Excellently conveyed, know you're in my prayers.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. *tears*
