Autumn's Breath

Autumn's breath, a gentle sigh
Trees waving this year's final goodbye

I breathe in air, cool and crisp
As colored jewels fall, a fleeting wisp

Yellows, orange and reds, mix with green
Swirling...tumbling...falling...

Leaving autumn's rainbow, neath my feet
For a glorious while, then to retreat 

Among autumn's breath, away they go
Scattered hither, to and fro

Carried away by autumn's breath
Awaiting winter's cold blanket of death

    I enjoyed this poem Donna, this should do well in the contest. It did get spooky there at the end, but I should mange without my night-light this evening. LOL! MC

    Lovely piece. " Yellows, orange and reds, mix with green Swirling...tumbling...falling..." Awesome lines. The Juxtaposition of words in this poem create an uplifting contrasting effect.

    Love autumn's breath as symbol of the wind, but I hate to see winter coming on. Love, daver
