The Colorful Leaves Are Here

The colorful leaves are here formed within the tree Is bright with hope, it forms a beautiful, joyful lair A shining moment outside, coming amazingly The colorful leaves are here I find the effect mesmerizing, such as one there The tree can form greater than anything, perfectly A gorgeous outlook will produce quite an air Colors are spread out over many that are made freely It’s all how you look at it, where none would despair The power of the tree, God created masterfully The colorful leaves are here
Russell Sivey First attempt at a Roundel, not for the contest as the contest's topic is different.

    I like that you experiment with the forms, and this poem is a beauty !! Another form I must check out when my mind is clearer. Just love the beauty nature, by God's hands, that has been bestowed upon the earth for our enjoyment.

    Hello Russell, the days are getting cooler and frost is drying up through the air, "SO I HEAR." Beautiful trees and shrubs are put on an autumn show in all shades of red, yellow, purple, and brown down in the Valley where my youngest sister lives.. The image above is splendid, a mesmerizing effect around the crisp fall days that are approaching. I like the vibrant leaves mastered by God, it brings to mind the memories of living out in the Autumn country. It seem like yesterday. Thank you helping me enjoy the view with my touring soul. always~ Linda
