Autumnal flame

Vistas of autumnal flame set the fiery meadows afire Where song of the winds wheezes in auburn breeze And gold, red, brown whispers kindle tunes of a lyre Rustling in cool air, melodies of leaves, falling from trees Where song of the winds wheezes in auburn breeze Pumpkin dreams meet to greet tricks of Halloween treat Rustling in cool air, melodies of leaves, falling from trees As carpets of crimson colors crunch beneath eager feet Pumpkin dreams meet to greet tricks of Halloween treat And gold, red, brown whispers kindle tunes of a lyre As carpets of crimson colors crunch beneath eager feet, Vistas of autumnal flame set the fiery meadows afire October 5, 2019 Placed 4th: Poet’s October pantoum cash prize poetry contest Sponsor: William Kekaula HM:Strand choice 5 contest by Brian Strand

How charming Autumn is! setting its fire into the soul.. transforming the heart and awakening muses of poetry and music! "Autumnal Flame" , substance and form! A great pleasure to read! An inspiring poetry deserving not only to be saved in my fave list but also to be honoured and rewarded! Dear Vijay, after reading your beautiful poem, I wrote "Autumn, A Painting Of An Artist".. My deepest regards and blessings.
