Too Late

too late--
watching the bees and butterflies
slowly vanish 
day by day into an autumn
of spinning leaves and colors

United Nations Plaza

Temperature dip
urban leaves turned
Autumn, sniffing around
for a place to settle
no Farmer's Market
in San Francisco today.

The Wind of Yesterday

Life is
Death is knots
A box of thoughts
Is not that above?
A twisted thing to ponder
Staring at 
A wilted rose by the casket out yonder

September's Perfume

Whisper sweet the words of September
land softly on the times we remember
Haunting scent of faint elder perfume
still lingers on the aging bloom.

Sleepy Sport

In our heads the season was far from over
so we played a game in late September.
He said, "before the sun sets
can we not take a rest?"
"But we already are, this is baseball remember?"

Short September poem by verlena dillard| Details | |


Amazed by Earth's beauty,
Understand the change,
To which when it's sunny,
Unexpected for those see the season image from their cage.
Many don't understand about fall,
No matter what, fall is the most beautiful of all.

Swan Lake

                                Engineless she lands
                                Late sun ripples indigo
                                Solo Proud lake swan

A September Alouette

September is here
With skies bright and clear.
Summer birds will be southbound.
Cooler breezes near.
School football we cheer.
The young quarterback is downed.

Parents go berserk,
Call player a jerk
For manhandling their loved son.
The ref's not a shirk,
Is good at his work,
Says no infraction was done.

Short September poem by Verlena S. Walker | Details | |


The token of life 
is greater than the world formed.
     Love of a carnal wealth shuns
     God. Revere, adulate, 
Lionize… For God so love the world…

Life is just token
given by God for courage.
     Revere, adulate, lionize
     For God so love the world
he sired a son on earth to save.
PENNED JULY 16, 2014!

The Sword

The sword lies on the ground. It speaks of warriors from the past. There were a lot of brave Warriors that used this sword. It lies on the hill, never to be used again. Copyright © Cynthia Jones Sept.19/2004 This was my attempt to do a picture using words. I wasn't going to post it, but thought, meh, what the heck.

Short September poem by Sandra Adams| Details | |

brush of fall

the old maple has grown tall with age
its branches are layered in green
little leaves that turn upward
to drink a gentle rain
its roots twist and turn
beneath earth's dirt
they bask in
September's air touches much like death
the tree shivers beneath her breath
and strips itself free of leaves
as they dance in her wind
colorful splashes
yellow, orange,
red... turn

Summer's End-Barzelletta-English Quintet Combo-

Summer has quickly come and gone you can smell the Fall in the air tomorrow will bring a new dawn look around, trees are going bare Fall jackets, people start to wear. Copyright © Cynthia Jones Sept.24/2013 I figured I would try something different (as always), with the different poetry styles that I have. I think I'll be doing many more of these ones.

The Stormbird

Lonely Stormbird calls, 
‘I am here. Choose me. Love me’.
Distant thunder rolls.

Flying rain in air —
Touching my cheek, alighting
On my eyelashes.

I hear, rain music —
On leaves, on roof, in gutters, 
Muted cars hiss by.

The rain burnishes
Dull browns and greens — to copper,
To emerald fire.

After — sun’s rays raise 
Steam; from road, leaf and feather.
Lonely Stormbird calls,
