The gull senses it
Just his usual cry, yet something portends
Something come alive
A relaxed, quiet intensity
Strange, like a trembling, single leaf, or
A dozen late, pink roses – one white rose

Laying out, watching the sky
The grass – damp chill against the bones
October’s sensation?  Well, not love exactly.
Thrill describes it

Distant roar of the stadium crowd
Footballs in the air
Spiraling, - spiraling to nowhere
The roar – now it becomes you
You become it
The visible, the invisible action of it all

    Truly a beauty, Daver.. Autumn's my favorite season, ever! Thank you for reading my featured poem...I'm still laughing even though it's been years since I wrote that. Hope you're doing well, Daver. God bless. Annalise

    Daver, I especially love that Last stanza, making us one with the feeling of October using football spiraling image( even though I hate that sport). It was a great image. this would work excellently in that one contest meant for the spirit of the fall!
