TEARS OF DEW

The frosty ground lies wet with tears of dew
as brittle leaves descend on morning mist.
The season glistens with a vivid hue
to mirror joys of loves eternal twist.	
The autumn colors with a mellow theme
afore the magic glow of winter’s white
reflects the dusk with moonbeams sudden gleam
as twilight’s passion sets our love alight.
The leafless Aspen with her branches bared,
exposed to trembling in the crispy breeze,
awakens ardor's virgin passion shared
and stays afresh beyond the lasting freeze.
The fall will nurture nature’s planted seed,
to bear new life and love’s emotions heed.

A terrific sonnet and such gorgeous imagery, TJ. I love how you contrast the fall colors with winter's white in the lines "The autumn colors with a mellow theme / afore the magic glow of winter’s white". Also, the intertwining themes of nature and love. I can tell you are both a lover of sonnets and nature! Well written ~ John

I saw this one a while back and was looking to see if it had won the contest (it got judged, right?) No matter, though, you have a beautiful creation from the inspiration of that contest.

Aspen trees are magnificent, but won't grow in the south. I love the way you described autumn's "mellow theme." It does seem that way with the golden hues. Thanks for stopping by my work, Teppo! Wishing you a happy new year! Hugs, carolyn
