As Autumn's Breeze

Summer languid daydreaming stance is over.
Cooler breezes blow, and robins fear the coming blizzards.
Mighty autumn begins its reign by disburdening trees
Heavy with their many seasoned leaves of various hues.

Soon white fluffy flakes of snow will start to precipitate 
As children shriek and chortle, making snowballs,
While others engineer a snowman just for laughs.

As father chops the wood prepared for days
When cold Winter starts to spread its cold.
Inside the house mother prepares her famous lunch.
The pumpkin soup smells of pure delicacy,
Warm thick brown morsels dipped in the warm soup,
Ah that spicy essence, a balm to thaw numb extremities.

Despite the icicles that form on our window panes,
The lake can only produce dangerous thin ice.
Skating is off limits as notices appear everywhere,
A harbinger of doom with skulls and prohibition.

Anticipated winter’s wrath shows its might, as landscapes 
Look threadbare since no flowers bloom, while some swans 
Fly away to warmer climes, leaving behind them sullen gloom.

Hi Victor, Autumn for me is a beautiful season but for many who have harsh winters, it is not a pleasant prospect however, you have painted a creative, warm poem of memories that you recall with this freezing season. Congratulations dear friend on POTD - a much deserved honor. Hope this winter is not too cruel! Hugs, Jennifer.

A mighty Autumn paving the way for a harsh winter could only be tamed by the warmth and love shared by souls.. I so much enjoyed your perception of the seasons in the absence of Spring.. A beautiful poetry deserving the honour and recognition.. Congratulations, Victor, on your POTD! Happy to see you here.. my warmest regards and blessings.

Winter has already hit in places north so the weathermen say on TV but we still have some warmth in the south but starting tomorrow the thermometer is suppose to drop but not quite freezing yet. Your poem reminded of those winter days in some of the lines. We usually don't have frozen streams or lakes here most years. Thanks for your visits to my page. Sara

Hey Victor, congrats on POTD. This was fantastic. I love the story here and the picture you created of the seasonal change and the hardships that come along with it. The ending was lonely but the poem itself was filled with warmth.
