The Notes Of Autumn - Poem by Cigeng Zhang

The gentle rain, like a violin
Clear autumn is the string
September’s fragrance
Permeate into the trunks
Discolored leaves are falling
onto earthy bed of refreshing

    Three images in six lines, four senses evoked: sight, sound, scent, touch, title image - these are the components of your poem, in the tradition of hundreds, no, thousands of Chinese poets before you, and they would all recognize the poetry you're writing. I'm going to write a similar poem today in the Twin Cities because it's same kind of day here. (Report) Reply
