A Fall that Speaks of Rain

A Fall that Speaks of Rain

A Poem by Richard Williams
"

After the Rain.

"


Apples strewn in random panorama,
Frosty Jack longs for autumn‘s better half.
Trees transcend with red and yellow raiment,
each glorious painted leaf a show piece.
Rain clouds fade to scenes of nature’s wonder.

Then we walk along a cobblestone street
holding hands, ecstatic and spent for each
electric intake of sweet scent we breathe.

Remind me how often raindrops occur
as a conveyor of fine ambrosia.
Ice must abide--for now, even Bambi
nuzzles lovingly in fresh sheets of rain.

(After The Rain: A double acrostic.)

I love this poem! The imagery is vivid and beautiful...a real treat for the senses! Plus double kudos for pulling off a double acrostic so masterfully.

that’s a good picture…
Rain stimulates emotions….
And emotions evoked by rain and cloud has a special hue….
Loved the way you wrote the poem very much….

Woah, double acrostic. Never seen that before. Even taking the very structured poem, it reads smoothly and the sensory details are just perfect. I smell rain...

What can I say? You are among the most skilled poets I've ever read. The way you use such a difficult structure, and yet make it read so smoothly is awe-inspiring. I find it difficult to believe that this hasn't been reviewed yet. This is awesome, and going into my favorites.
