Autumn has forever been my favourite season. To me it’s such a pure time o the year, almost like a fresh cleansing after the heat and humidity of Summer. The smells, the sounds, the colours – the mornings especially are my favourite times. I’m not a morning person – more so in Winter for obvious reasons! However, a morning in Autumn is breathtaking enough to melt the frost on any tired eye.
These two poems are an expression of this love I have for Autumn.
The first is an Acrostic poem – my first EVER! This was so much fun to write and I hope you enjoy it.
The second is a poetic narrative of my morning walks to work through my local streets of London. As a Wallflower, music is my cocoon, particularly while outside. I love to drown out the noise and envelope myself in the views to the sounds I love. They add a soundtrack to my stride, which then becomes a strut as I get more into the beat!
Any way I do hope you like them! I’d love yo hear your thoughts – not just on my pieces but also on what you love about this season.
Each step my foot springs on earth damp from dew
Quivering leaves of gold and bronze cascade to the ground
Using the wind they dance to a song with no sound
I bask in the low sun as it beams through branches
New seasons bring light to new second chances
Over are the long days; the sun sets at curfew
X marks the spot of my life lust renewed
