Falling Leaf, Autumn, Fall, Nature

The falling leaves tell a summer story of roses blush with fullness as they bloom. Waving fields of grass were July’s glory, and they will say it fades away too soon. The falling leaves speak of summer sunshine of evenings with a lighted hue of gold days that were as perfect as a fine wine and midnights searing with a passion bold. The falling leaves forecast a coming winter a cause for human closeness, friends and fire. Into our protective caverns we will enter to be warmed by the hearth of heart’s desire. If we listen to our world, nature sighs, as do the falling leaves as each one dies. 10/2/19 Give Me Your Best New Poem Sponsor, Emile Pinet 4th place, Premiere Contest Autumn Sonnet Sponsor, John Hamilton 3rd place STRAND SPECIAL 7,any form ,any theme Poetry Contest Sponsor, Brian Strand 1st place
