autumn bleeds the last of color

upon a carpet green as the sun

imparts its final rays of warmth.

 

bittersweet this closing gift

for soon the cold descends,

my spirit dormant in the icy

winter chill.

 

yet, reminders of golden springs

replay in memories soft, nature’s

comfort to feed my wistful soul.

I love this tenderly rendered offering, Dawn. You capture well the drama of nature--the intensity of autumn, the threat of impending winter, and the gentlness of spring. Excellent writing.

No warmth in autumn where I live now; only rain! Love the "dormant spirit" and "golden springs".

I agree that some autumn days can bring a longing and a bittersweet "taste" to the soul. I can relate to what you have expressed via your verses here, Dawn. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and best wishes,

Beautiful picture, Dawn, and words to match.
Autumn is my favorite time of year at the shore.
I'll avoid the ice of winter; one slip is enough!

A beautiful picture and beautiful poem to complement it. The second stanza describes this blustery morning here where I live. I woke up and it was shivery cold inside and out. I think, like your poem states, many of us take a dormant attitude through the winter season. A lovely write, Dawn.

The Fall brings color in the changing leaves that is brilliant but Spring is my favorite season in California as the colors of the blossoms dictate a special beauty and perfume all their own. Excellent work.

You make even me long for spring again as I read, and I'm an Autumn girl! How do you do that?!

Ah, Christine said it so well, huh? I know you don't like the cold weather, but at least you'll have a bit of relief for the next coming two weeks, although it is in the forties here this morning and going down into the thirties tomorrow. BRR
