Fall


the summer is ending
I feel Septembers
Cold fingers
reaching around the
fragile neck
of my beloved season
as the summer dies
and fires on the beach
cease
we will sit back
and catch the leaves
as they fly from the trees
that once bound them to earth
they pile in thousands
some meek and some tall
I feel my back against the wall
summer has died
and now its
f

    the imagery in this one is fantastic and the way you separated the letters of 'fall' at the end was super creative, i like this one a lot. it's a different style than most of your others. (Report) Reply

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
