Autumn's Gown

I sketched with pen the outlines of clustered naked trees
With brush in hand I painted with care and utmost ease.

Outpouring of emotions on canvas splashed in hues
With freedom of expression I shed away my blues
A captivating picture – the flair of ardent muse.

The yellow, red and orange mixed well with mauve and brown
With eager strokes I finished and called it Autumn’s Gown.

I felt like a movie was playing in my head - the dialogue of a painter in real time. Andrea is right... a beauty she is.

I love that Autumn Gown.It would make such a lovely painting in my hall: ).When I read this I didn't see just autumn colours,but I could sense and feel the mixture of bright and mild colours,as such is life with all its highs and lows.That freedom of expression is indeed a healer to our blues and a voice to inner joy.A spectacular poem in hundred shades of Fall.Indeed an artist of words ,Paul.

I came back to read your new writes and reviewed this gem again. Adding this one to my fav list my friend. Failed to do so the first read because I was rushed away to run an errand for my darling wife! Honey-do's take precedence over my readings and writings... Remedy now has been applied. Bravo on this gem...
