flaming autumn

I hear the crackling beat of 
Castanets and fast strumming guitars 
As autumns blustery storm lifts 
Fallen red, yellow and orange leaves
Twisting and twirling them like a Gypsy girl’s skirt  
As she dances around campfire flames.


Autumn Splendor -contest by- Russell Sivey

    What a beautiful entry for a contest! It swirls with color and action to give this Gypsy dance a special place in my heart. I'm sure Rusty lovedit too.
