Autumn's Breath

As I walk through this colorful boulevard,
cool breeze touches the back of my neck
from the breath of autumn,
breath of life from the nostrils of hope;
I smile at my lady who looks graciously captivating
like the red and pink maples and apples on my left;
this cozy feeling sends me into  a trance.....

Trees branches spread the rays of the yellow sun,
like the beam of a strong musical concert,Illuminating the stage.
The displays of yellow,green and red foliage turn
the road and pathway into a superb international fashion show;
on the floor lies leaves of different colors
forming a crispy soft carpet on the ground,
`Oh! it reminds me of my wedding day`,
atmosphere full of heavenly bliss,...

I jerk back to the present as zephyr touches me
gently and whistles softly into my ears;
The birds flap their wings to give the almighty
a clap offering for this beautiful Cre..a..t.ion,
my lady looks at my face and nods happily,
squeezing my right hand reassuringly,
Kismet has blessed us with autumn,once again!.
