Autumn Love

As flames of summer’s infatuations wane, a new love,
  Unheralded yet undaunted, arrives,
    Transforming and maturing until, like trees windblown, though
      Unclothed and trembling at winter’s onset, remains
        Moored in a strength of devotion which does
          Not burn out like summer’s lust.

    Love in autumn, mellowed,
      Overspreads. . . and though the deepened russet and
          Vermilion hues of fall eventually are touched by frost, its
             Essence will ever endure.

It is too bad that our poems get cut off especially when writing an Acrostic. I love the metaphors in this lovely poem Andrea. I am so happy to see it on top! Congratulations my friend! : )

This is lovely, Andrea. It has a great flow from one line to another for a free verse acrostic. I guess most acrostics are free verse, don't know for sure but it is a nice write. Congratulations on your win. Blessings, Janis.
