Blue Autumn

Blue Autumn

A Poem by wordman
"

"


Autumn leaves,

a whisper of snow,

the warmth from the fire

as the red embers glow .

 

Night fall comes

in shades of gray and black

not a star shining

as the clouds push them back

 

I reminess

as the day goes by

our love reminds me

of the colors of the sky

 

Gray and black

not a star in sight

i knew our love was over

this very night ...

I am also haunted by melancholy as autumn comes on & chills us out. Your poem brings to mind how often the things we love seem to end around this time of year. The Harvest Moon, 2 days away, is a reminder of many losses, most of all my German Shepherd, named Montana, some years back. Thank you for your lovely reminder (((HUGS)))

Romantically sad? Sad Romance. I didn't even consider this a thing, but you did it. Seems they would be harder to put together. Well done!

What a sad ending to your lovely poem. But that's the way of it often I suppose. Neither Poe's Annabelle Lee or Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet had a happy ending. I enjoyed the read.

The use of nature to convey the emotion and feelings creates such a vivid clear image as though one is in the writer's shoes. Stars and romance always create a sparkle and the idea that there are none in sight hints that the ending is not as bright. Beautiful poem this.

This poem makes me feel soothed and somber. Love the imagery and simplicity. Props to the word play of "Autumn leaves."
