Away Autumn Stills  

                                                         by Sami Khalil


Away Autumn stills, in the glare of amber gazes,

atop Deer antlers, through thick manes of Horses, by

echoes of Woodpeckers’ drumbeats, pigeon drops on

roofs, its sallow shadows, lancing down, proffering

safe falling, the rustling resonance of leaves.

 

To endless wondering, steadfast, the cobbled paths

extend to runaway dawns, trundling past bridges

resting on two banks, handing baskets of old nests.

Log cabins, felled by axes, gasp through the mist of

watchful eyes, the poetic guise of cedar, oak and pine forests.

 

Nature is aglow, remembering halcyon days and ways,

its payloads of harvest in sorrow and travail,

the delighted courters of her yawning moons that arc

her quiet nights. She is, with tired fingers leaves her comfort,

grasping hordes on their march, caravans of bewildered thought.

 

There are no plaques for change, for reflections scattered in

grace, with beating hearts’ fickle fates, theirs only to bare. But

jewels are found in forlorn wanderings, through simpered grasps,

in trust and love, where eternity rests beyond the familiar,

in moments inhaled and exhaled. That is where I drift off, perish!

Those 'amber gazes' are the most beautiful images, in what to me is the most colourful of seasons.

You paint a lovely and alluring picture here Sami.

Beccy.

Same to you. Will visit soon...
I love how your autumn imagery is vivacious & alive, whereas many paint the season as a dying off. I love the rustic scenes & introspection, which is exactly how autumn strikes me . . . a time to go within to the less-polished rooms of one's psyche where introspection begins (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

A beautiful poem that makes me want to wander in those "cobbled paths." Since, I live in a city and summer is the main season here in this part of the world, I don't get to see such a pleasant view of autumn, which I did through your poem. It has such a beautiful imagery! Thanks for sharing.

Like both you, Sami, and Jacob below, Autumn is my favourite season, too, where the searing heat and lazy days of summer give over to the quiet seriousness of the fall. The cooler weather brings a calmness along with it in my experience.

Your poem wonderfully describes the season as you see it with your own eyes. Full of lush description that captures the essence of the season in your trademark excellent vocabulary. I like the final short sentence also, with your exclamation of joy as you throw yourself into autumn, wholly. Its another 3.5 months wait till Autumn for me, but your poem gives me hope for what lies ahead.

Another excellent write, my friend.

Hahaha....
this is a jewel of a poem. Autumn is my favorite season to experience and my season of the most writing...always the fall just seems to inspire...and what you have presented here in your images of this season are the exact reasons why.
