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


reminisce

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 ...

Started hopefull, then took on a sad note and in both it was easy to imagine the scene and feel the emotion leading to this brief tale.

Autumn, a fire burning, one of my favorite and most romantic times of the year. I have a lot of great memories of this time of the year, snuggling up next to a fire. The mention of the season, and stars and I automatically pegged this one as a love poem, and not a love lost poem. Unfortunately, my love didn't last either, but there were other, greater loves. Each one taking a part of my heart, but contributing to my life in one way or another.

My goodness have I missed
reading your lovely work my
friend.

Sad yet so beautiful
and romantic like always👍💙💛

I've been terribly busy
haven't had time to come
on here at all.

my mother
and have been helping my
Older brother with his 20
month old son but just
some messy things going
on.

But been in Georgia
since the middle of
September 2018.

I've been happy
in love but I'm very
happy I was able to
post 3 new poems

But I haven't stopped
writing I just do it when
I have time to because
can't take our 👀 eyes
off little Rylan.

Well I hope you
had a blessed Christmas
and a happy New year's
New 2019.

Take care my friend 😁

😁👍 you're welcome I enjoyed reading this wonderful piece my friend.
I just loved the title of this poem, Ron. A hint of sadness in the concluding lines. Yet the simple elegance and effortless rhyme of the verses made up for it and I was delighted by the beauty of this Blue Autumn love. Have an awesome New Year’s Eve, my friend! 💥✨⚡️💫😂

It's sad that we have to look to the heavens to justify our losses or gains. Your words paint the perfect picture of a failed love. Great write!

not a problem sir.
This one is clearly worded and has imagery that paints nice pictures. The images of autumn and a starless sky give hint of loss. Sure enough, the poem's end tells of a love gone forever. Might have a poignant, moving sound if set to music.

I don't know if you know this or not, but I thought it would be worth mentioning. I noticed you chose a purple rose as the picture to go along with this poem, even though the poem is called, "Blue Autumn." The purple rose symbolizes love or enchantment at first sight, but feelings that can also leave just as easily and without much warning.....as it seems the love in this poem has done.. not sure if you did that on purpose or not. Nicely written poem, well done.
