Late-Flowering Love

Under molten autumn's tumbling umber we walk,
fingers clinging, hours disappearing as we talk.

Love gifts drift from kaleidoscope canopy trees -
gentle showers of confetti-colourful leaves.

Heart-scarlet berries glow hotly in hedgerows,
passion-flame petals burn on a late-blooming rose.

Susurrous russet whisperings as leaves cascade;
secrets shared in soft, sequestered shade.

Reaping this harvest of hopes and dreams
in the late golden gleam of sunbeams.

Melding as day gives way to mauve-mellow twilight;
communing with the misted murmurings of night.

    The alacrity with which you spread these splashes of color onto your misted murmurings is delightful. No wonder you make a success of so many contests. I'm a little envious, but that's OK. You should not be held back for anything.

    leaves turning and falling before dried, showing their true colours before they died. an aura and spectrum for the eye. one last ask before the living dies. wait for me, wait for me, prize. when i wake from this winter, be before my eyes. wait for me , wait for me. heart. then i'll be brand new do not depart.
