Now that Autumn has begun (Two Autumn Poems)

Autumn colours in the Landscape

Autumn comes singing in
Displaying her treasures’ galore.
So prettily dressed she grins
Spreading more beauty than before

She transforms the trees one by one,
She paints their leaves with new hues.
There’s a different kind of fun,
Now that Autumn has begun

Fires of autumn time 2

There’s a magic in the air,
In the smells and all the colors.
Cool breeze plays with my hair,
While her beauty I just stare!

Autumn has come back at my door,
What a sight! It’s the season I adore

Amber Glow

By : Wesley Mincin

Red and yellow painted leaves
hang idly within the trees
They break and sail along the breeze
As fires of Autumn’s time

They dance and surf upon the ground
Overlap each other with ruffling sound
A setting I am glad I found
As fires of Autumn’s time

Fires of autumn time 4

Like fires of the Autumn season
they leap and dance without a reason
A factor of Autumns many seasons
As fires of Autumn’s time’

The grey clouds break, the sun appears
The dancing leaves appear to sere
These flames its kept for many years
As fires of Autumn’s time

    I especially love that first poem. It evokes the spirit of this magical season. The old stone bridge reminds me of the days of my childhood, spent in ‘old Europe’.

  4. The color found in the images remind me of the moment when I wrote ‘Of Quiet Autumn Days’. Truly beautiful Nigel. The images and the poems blend together so perfectly…they give birth to words in my mind. Any time you find a beautiful picture to share and if you want I would be glad to write a poem for it…sort of a collaboration. Or just ask ahead of time on what you would like a poem to say to match up to a picture you have taken and I would be glad to do so. You capture such a genuine beauty in the shots you take. Have a wonderful weekend!
