The Hue of Blue

The wind rushes through the valley
whispering your name.
Autumn trees begin to release their leaves
reluctantly, trying to hold on to summer.
I see your reflection in droplets of rain,
I share your joys, and feel your pain, yet
you have moved on without a thought of 
what we once shared that summer so long ago.

As the crisp air and rain touches my face 
all those memories tend to cascade.  .  . 
flooding my mind and nearly drowning me.
Blue is my mood and my chosen hue that
lays to rest happier times in the summer sun,
in the clear cool lake, under the trees in your arms.
I, now in my autumn years, and feeling so much
like those lovely trees, reluctantly let go.

    This is such a lovely verse. I have written a poem called Blue before, but I quite like this verse better. Beautiful imagery throughout. I would love for some crisp air and rain to touch my face! Bring on the fall! Always, Laura

    I really like this, a beautiful depiction of autumn but with such a poignant, bittersweet undertone, and the last two lines bring the poem to a perfect close...thank you for leaving such a lovely, inspiring comment on my work :)

    This is lovely, and melancholy poetry, Connie.......this line ..."lays to rest happier times in the summer sun," says it best. I loved it !!
