Autumn’s playfulness…

There’s a gentleness in filtered light,
a graceful exposure,
a quiet diaphanous glow
that brings about compose…

Received by dappled light
I paid homage to the trees,
as I let autumn’s playfulness
color me with ease…

Earth’s encore…

So you don’t
get love letters
anymore?
Go out into the fields
and drink in nature’s cure…

expressions
of love
are everywhere
pirouetting
and dancing with creative flair…

serenading you
with undying love,
messages that fall
from up above…

and when you find
despair
knocking
at your door,
go out and join-in
with earth’s encore…

Mellow ambiance…

“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”
― Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

There’s a resplendent elegance
about falling leaves,
a mellow ambiance
when conditions ease.

a crunch on the pavement breaks my stride
and flickering of particles gently collide…

the sun dips low
in water-colored groves,
I feel the fluency of light exposed.

the vacant stare
of these troubled times,
is being assuaged by natures signs…

Jasmine…

jasmin

Decorative signs
of early spring,
creep quietly
with the news they bring…
To remind us that hope survives,
to bask in sunshine
and so to thrive…
To let go
of wintery dread,
and blossom profusely from
dormant beds…
To come to life
with anthems raised,
and cover borders
with lavish praise…
To renew their vows
with Mother earth,
and burst
with the fragrance
of rebirth…

Wintery discontent

winter of discontent

I cried and cried all day,
while unsympathetic winds blew…
clouds pressed down in leaden greys
overwhelming the blues…

and rain mingled with my tears
falling freely…
leaves crunched underfoot,
my bearing was uneasy…

wintery discontent
had swaggered in
without an apology,
and emotions creaked,
bearing gloom,
shaken by the velocity…

Spring tiptoes passed….

“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.”
Hal Borland

a hint of spring

Winter is befuddled when warm winds blow,
moving over,
to let flowers grow!

The drabness of the landscape,
under oblique sun.
Earth tilts forward and winter is undone!

Feelings oscillate, between highs and lows,
shedding dreariness,
we change our bulky clothes!

Don’t wait in the wings for another icy blast,
let out hearts applaud,
as spring tiptoes passed….

Prelude to Autumn

heartlands

Misty preludes,
the reviews are in.
Fall’s overture
is wearing thin.

Summer’s frolic
is dwindling fast;
flowers sigh,
and appear downcast.
Autumn peeps,
and mists converge,
on grey horizons,
the call is heard!

Cooler breezes,
stir falling leaves;
these preambles,
do as they please!

Warmer days,
have not yet passed,
though fall’s attitude,
is being forecast!

Harbingers of what’s to come,
foretelling rains,
and a distant sun!

Birds tarry with brighter days,
their milieu
and matinees,
are sprinkled with songs of Fall,
while the summer sun,
is acting small!

P.S.  Summer gigs have not concluded,
they’re being upstaged,
and convoluted!
