For me Autumn is the onset of a long gloomy season. It invites winter to take over which normally suffocates my muse.

In the hungry jaws of autumn
Summer is being swallowed in
It is waving good bye to us

Trees started shaking bodies
To relieve themselves from
The burden of bearing with leaves

Leaves are rolling in the streets
Amid wafting winds and soft downpour
As trees are being stripped naked

In the clash of seasonal changes
I see beauty gasping for a breath
It is fading into a horizon of gloom

This is very well expressed, Abdi-Noor. I cannot help but be drawn into the mood that you have evoked with your verses. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

Ahhh, but through the snow and ice when the earth sleeps, it prepares and grows strong for a new Spring just ahead, lovely writing, so deep at heart...

Be always safe,

For me Autumn is the onset of a long gloomy season.

But I love its many colors, and I'm out and about, enjoying it, right now!

Love this one it is so different from most poems about changing seasons
Reviewed by Jon Willey 9/4/2008
this is a very good view of the seasonal change -- with just the right mix of anticipation for the return of spring and summer next year -- as fall has become the change master -- keep your Muse alert and active this stark season -- it makes winter's gloom a little more palatable -- JMW
Reviewed by Dawn Anderson 9/4/2008
I have a love/hate relationship with autumn. Next to summer, it is my favortie is what comes next...winter...that I do not like. Cold, short days, long nights...that "closed in" feeling. But there is hope in knowing that with the change of seasons, we will have the chance to welcome summer again. Beautiful writing, Abdi.
Reviewed by Amber Moonstone 9/4/2008
Such beauty among gloom. Never give up hope, Abdi, there is beauty in barren land, one has to find it and embrace change. I never liked to see summer come to an end, but now I embrace the changes, and look forward to what nature has in store for me. I try so hard to look at the positive no matter what. I wish you well and much health and happiness..
Peace, love, and light,
Amber "V"
