rhapsodical Autumn pleasures

rhapsodical Autumn pleasures

A Poem by Paloma
"

...

"


Savoring sun's glow at the nape of my neck,

whilst gingered leaves are dancing willy-nilly

'tween harmonious Autumn breezes improvising 

 midmost hazily whispering sunset horizons

 dreamily drifting further away,


in this moment inspiration pensively sojourns

   amongst impulsively rhapsodical pleasures

"gingered leaves are dancing willy-nilly" this hits the brightest picture of autumn at the start of the poem.. I really love the imageries you have brought here, and I can feel the soft touches of autumn breeze passing by me... Lovely use of words to, we'll chosen and they makes the most clear imageries...

Sincerely

Your words remind me of someone I wish was still here. I ache for her to return. Awesome poetry. Your words are unique and musical. :)

beautiful colors here Paloma.... reminds me of the scenery going up route 81 in Pa between Hazelton and Scranton... besides any poem that uses "willy nilly" in it is a-ok with me.... lol

there really is a rhapsody playing when autumn breezes taunt multi-colored leaves...

Thanks so much for your attentive reviews Rach.
I love the beautiful colours of fall but it's never been my favorite season due to the fact that all the beauty is so short lived (at least where I'm from) you captured it so creatively here though - makes me wish it would linger a bit longer :)

You live at the beach? That's not too shabby either, I'll take that to falling leaves any day. :)read more
FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Autumn is my favorite season; the sensory overload and it is also the time where creativity is enhanced. Artists, writers, and musicians have claimed that fall is inspirational. The GIF leaves gave a calming effect and perhaps even playful. It brought a smile to myself because I become so restless that I forget the beauty that is outdoors for I tend to sleep all day and awake all night.

CONTENT AND FORMAT

First impressions were rather accurate since the speaker mentions "inspiration" from the imagery of autumn. The font signifies the brilliant foliage so the audience feels the words from the screen. I adore the description of "impulse" and "pleasures." I envision college students scurrying into a bookstore with pumpkin spice coffee, talking about their interests in literature and the arts as they begin the semester. It is euphoric to have something become anew. I only wish that autumn was longer because I often dread winter.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

The playful nature lends itself to innocence; it is a relief to remember our inner child. Thank you for sharing!

sincerely,
ria

What a wonderful dissection of an autumn moment. Your lines how this melodious tone to them which gives it this almost magical sound :). Your descriptions are impeccable, providing us with vivid images dancing in front of our eyes. It's during these little moments in life that inspiration tends to strike, doesn't it? Lovely piece.

Nice to know, thanks Neville.
inspiration seems to fall in autumn in abundance, much like the leaves we walk through during a wispy october afternoon...as the trees shed their clothing.
