Autumn's Breath

The autumn rain falls, drip, drip, drip on down As crisp as the breath of fall I don’t drown I love the feel of the autumn evening Being so filled with rain a great feeling Rain cooled by the sky and the air fallen As the clouds reaches nearer to the glen They explode with the grey life of evening My feelings in this time go exploring The ground is slightly wet and the air damp There is little light within the sky’s lamp I sense the coolness of the evening air Showing I truly love it and I care The near night feel radiates peace and calm Dampness with a chill is within my palm

    From your fondness for dampness and chill, I take it you have been through some hot times. Nice read, full of feelings and thought.

    So Autumn sounds very damp where you are.!! Is it the rainy season? I think you gave that feeling about it very well. I think it means something different for many different regions of the world!

    a nice and lovely uncoventional sonnet, Russell. I notice more and more poets doing their own rhyme scheme with sonnets. I like it with rhyming couplets this was as well.

    I love the elegance of this one and how it floats perfectly, russel. Your impressions are stunning and coolness is very subtle but lurking around, like a mystery... fine job!..:) huggs
