Nature's shift

The opus leggy grasses sing in the gusts
Curious hands stretched across the blade tips
Inviting the musty scene of autumns blush

Candy orange blossom apple crisp
Cherry red brush ablaze over the fields
A meadows laughter, a meadows wish

Gathering dews drops that gently glisten
Harps of elation's pluck the birds of song 
Soon they take flight for a journey, listen
 
The linger crickets ponder chirping shoreward
Soon naked birch peel their tender bark 
Steel eyes from above cast their calendar forward


Lonesome nights straddle below the moons eyes
Shinning down like glass upon the a midnight hour
Lapping bonnets of quaggy fen and the eerie loons cry 

Summer has stroked on by!

    Hi Laura, You have such a lovely way with words. An amazing poetress you are! Missed you...I love the way all your first and third lines rhyme. I found myself captivated word for word line for line. Read this twice to really soak up your creative expression...smile. Here in Alaska, the leaves are ablazin and the mountain peaks have snow on top. Only 2-3 weeks till snow. Where did the summer go?! Take care Love Light Truth Patricia
