A Poem for National Poetry Day

As it’s National Poetry Day I thought I had better share a poem! Here’s a new one I wrote today, called “Autumn”. Hope you enjoy the read. 🙂

Autumn

a second spring

think of leaves

as flowers

and you will see blossom

everywhere.

Nature is feeding the fire

an endless glory

emblazoned across every leaf

on every tree.

How could you ignore this

how could anyone

not love this. . .

It’s one final show

before the curtains close

for winter,

and wow

it is spectacular.

A firework display

of red, russet,

gold

leaves flickering like flames

burning the ice-blue sky

such a contrast

such a feeling

such a sight

to behold,

autumn. . .

just autumn.
