October brings us panoramic scenes
Picassoesque impressionistic style
From reds to browns and earth tones in between
When nature paints those landscapes that beguile

The helpful sun provides hot yellow paint
Which bleeds and blends from mountains to the seas
There are no signs that nature shows restraint
As hues are scattered by the autumn breeze

Yet with her madness comes a masterpiece
The reason for spring's jealousy of green
Before her creativity has ceased
Her orange and black spills on Halloween

October means peace, love, and harmony
Get with your friends, enjoy fall's scenery

Thank you, Paloma. Very flattering comments. I appreciate your kindness but I am without ego. However, like any old man, I do like to flirt:)

"When nature paints those still-life's that beguile"...I love that line (even though they are not considered "still lifes"; they are called landscapes). I recently painted an autumn scene that I bet you would like. Hope you are well, Daniel.

Thank you, Charlie. I actually didn't think this poem was that good, to be honest with you. Really don't do egos! Were I to "get the big head" I would try to write a book. Not gonna happen! Poetry is fun! The best part is...the friends like you:)

Autumn is a beautiful season when the weather is just right to turn the leaves the right shades..Sometimes it is so dry here that the leaves just turn brown..I enjoyed reading your work..Thanks for stopping by..Sara

Yes, the summer heat takes it's toll on us. West Mountain is out my back door and it usually gets a lot of color, so I get lucky. Thank you for dropping in and checking on my vocabulary:) Hopefully you'll get a little rain and get some color this year. Thank you, Mrs Sara.

Thank you, Jo. It seems at times, for those of us who do, we tend to take it for granted that everyone gets to enjoy the rich colors of our autumns. It's always my pleasure when you drop by. Thank you for sharing your smile.

Funny you should say that, nette. When I decided to learn how to write a sonnet, i thought it would be something I could do rather quickly. I suppose it's the perfectionist in me. I keep trying and trying to find the right words for the perfect sonnet. Thank you for your patient support:)

Thank you, Probir. You are so kind. I really appreciate your support. Is it autumn in Malta? Isn't that where you live? Do you get colors like this?

This is a breathtaking sonnet Danny. The kind of imagery that makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the scenery. You are indeed an artist my friend. This is a very beautiful autumn poem! A fave for me! 7 ; )

Thank you, Mrs Connie. Such kind comments:) I appreciate your time and support. I love the autumn colors. I live with a mountain, out my backdoor, covered with trees. I love when the clouds are laying down on top, the coolness and the quiet. That's when the mind travels!
