Autumn Rainbow

Autumn Rainbow

A Poem by Fabian G. Franklin

Morning reflections



Listening to secrets in the morning;

Things night whispered to the cool gray dawn

Wisps of wood smoke twisting from distant chimneys

The whistling  scent of autumn like a song


Deep red leaves floating from trees

Rusted gold wounds from shivering maples

Brave sun stretching and yawning, bending his bow;

Shooting brilliant arrows into the fog


Mockingbird scolded by a quarrelsome squirrel

Not everyone appreciates a serenade at dawn

Crows stalk corn field stubble; squabbling and hopping

Canada geese return; honking, to the pond


A writing spider, high in blue spruce

Decorates the branches with her web

Birds of all sorts flock to the feeders

Nibbling sunflower seeds and bits of bread


Here, among smoky blue-gray hills

Steam rises from multi-colored pinnacles

Glinting light from evergreens dazzling

With rainbow colors in morning chill

I make an effort to reciprocate all reviews left on my work. I rarely read at random unless a title catches my eye or the piece has been reviewed by a friend. But if you'd like me to review something,.. more..
