Autumn Is A State Of Mind

Rating: 5.0
I feel the gray rain falling in my mind.
Crying becomes a thousand leaves outlined.
My eyes are mesmerized by red sumac.
A touch of pewter shines against my back.

The autumn smells of apples in my hair.
The smoke of silence strips the light from air.
I taste a lemon memory of cold skies.
Frost writes your name across my closed eyes.

Sandra, I suppose Autumn can be a state of mind, leaves fall, tears fall, but in life there is winter warmth, as well as winter cold. I love your writing Bob

Sandra, in the title itself you have said everything. though the poem begins on a melancholic note, somehow in the last lines, your memories dispel the clouds. seasons of the mind governed by seasons of the heart. lovely. you always express your thoughts so beautifully, using unusual images.10 Mamta

This intimate relationship with elements of nature, which sometimes amounts to complete unity, is amazing. The imagery is as vivid and surprising as the experiences depicted.

Sandra, this is such a melancholy piece - filled with and sombre grays and tears. Once again, you use your unique rapport with the natural world to effectively capture mood and show the reader your Autumn state of mind. A wonderful poem. love, Allie xxxx
