Autumn's Breath - contest

The countryside is on fire
The heat of the colours
Warms the soul
The crunch of the leaves
As though had been in an inferno
Bringing delight to everyone

The orange and red leaves
Paint the trees when its cold
To bring alive your memories
Only to fall like a dead puppet
When all the strings
Have been let go

Autumn is telling us Winter is nigh
Take the warmth of me
The autumn breath of fire
Implanting reminders of walks
amidst the tropical  storm
of leaves, as they say goodbye

    Wonderful poem. Autumn is my favorite season and I love the ending about walking in the storm of leaves.

    Seren this one got better and better as I went along. I absolutely love the third stanza. The lines about "take the warmth of me" and "the autumn breath of fire" super fine lines!!!
