This is so lovely. I was just admiring "Leaf stubble" in a poem at my blog by Julie Larios. Fun to see your second line here, too.These are all images of my favorite season that I love. Thanks, Charles!
"And shadows chase after the day..."Lovely! Here too!A.
Hi, Charles. Beautiful poem -- I love this time of year. My favorite phrase is "the runaway leaves." It feels like those leaves have somewhere better to be.
Charles, you inspired me to write this:Autumn’s Red DressI caught a shapely maple changing her gown today,And felt a tug of guilt for not politely turning away.So in silence I began to pray,Asking forgiveness for gawking so.But as I lingered ever longer there,In the stillness God answered my prayer.“My son,” said he, “such beauty I made to share,And I would not will that you should go.Marvel now and remember still when your hairTurns as white as the coming snow.”© Larry Garland
