AUTUMN HAUNTS THE AIR

AUTUMN HAUNTS THE AIR

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

Coxcomb red her hair...

"









Coxcomb red her hair, viper black her eyes

Over fields of lace I hear her lullabies

Lavender dreams of the gossamer streams

Lying in a mist of nothing it seems

Ever a numbness as leaves pass the day

Ever a fragrance of autumn’s display

Now fighting the future, I beg you to stay

I love this poem very much. One of the best autumn poems I've read & there have been dozens! I love how your tone seems to teeter between loving & embracing autumn, yet also dreading the losses. That's kinda how I feel about being in the autumn of life! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

Our senses trap us in the seasons, sometimes sadly. Loss seems to replay and torment us when the season is upon us. Fall and winter are the worst, perhaps. The symbolism of loss, transitions to gray, are what come to me as a I read this one. An original work of art in words and images.

'Lying in a mist of nothing' - lovely expression. I can't help but feel lost in your poems every time I read, Craig. Always inspiring.

As often you catch both the beauty and sadness of love: the urgent need of a special time with a special person. Plus, memories intact, but... somehow.. slipping away. How the colour wheel remains your closest ally, Owl - whatever the season.
