Various different poems



The wind rustles the leaves,
Sending them afloat,
Towards the carnival,
We are going to the Carnival,
Yes! To the Carnival we go,
Cotton candy intertwined,
With the cool autumn breeze,
Brilliant amber and fierce scarlet,
Surround us, all-encompassing,
Carousels, laughter, and Ferris wheels,
Love, joy, and a feeling of fulfillment,
Cling close to us like some unseen friend,
And we spend the evening laughing together,
At the palace of pleasures, our Eden,
   The Carnival 
Watching them float away,
Spheres of color brilliantly shining,
In the orange glow of fading sunlight,
I cannot gaze upon them without thinking,
Of the joy they brought some small child,
I reached out and saved one,
Holding it in my hand I finally understand,
Childhood is like this balloon I hold,
Bright, brilliant, happiness, sheer bliss,
Slipping silently out of your hands,
Before you even realize that its gone
Recently a young girl,
Approached me with a purpose,
And she asked about morality,
About the nature of existence,
I simply laughed and told her,
That all of us sin and the Lord,
In his infinite wisdom and charity,
Will most surely forgive us of,
Our various misdeeds and faults,
“But if he doesn’t” I said,
“Than you shall worry no,”
“For it wouldn’t matter anyway”
“Because we would all be burning together”
When someone asked me if I sin,
My answer was simple,
“Do you?” I said,
“Yes” he answered
“Then why do you ask me?”
“We essentially have the same faults”
My answer proved sufficient,
For he quickly fell silent

I love the last two poems.
Very intricate and purposely deep.
I look forward for your next entry.

These all run together very well but they could also and very easily stand alone. I love it. I wish I were more eloquent and better able to describe what I think you have here. I will just have to keep reading. Fantastic work.
