HERE COMES FALL

The leaves are made of golden brocade
Loosened, they flutter down and
Blink on and off like a light bulb
Winking slyly to me: "Here comes Fall!"

The afternoon glow invades my heart
But the drifting leaves disperse

Like a flung pack of cards
Shouting at me: "Here comes Fall!"

  9. Fall is my favorite season of the year! And there is that afternoon glow, when the leaves are all golden/red and orange. It just brightens up everything, even if it's cloudy.

    Beautiful!

  10. Wowww!!
    Thats so beautiful!!

    Margie, we dont have a fall season as such in Kerala, and there arent much of a seasonal variation even throughout the year. But I have chanced across wonderful accounts and pictures of the fall season and it truly sounds and seems one awesome time!

  11. :-) :-) Sweet poem Margie.
    Fall is fake is california. The leaves turn red, then brown and then fall down. I love the fall on the east coast, every possible fall color is seen on the trees.

    P.S: apologies for not visiting your blog in a long time. Also, reg. my post on Tahitian Wedding; it is not a real wedding. I had mentioned at the end of the post that it is from a show at PCC. Sorry if you thought it was real. I have edited my post to specifically mention that.

    Take care -ari

  14. Beautiful Margie, I can almost see the leaves fall.

  15. I am happy most of the time Margie, but sometimes I regret living in a tropical country. I don't see sweeping change of seasons.

    Early morning and evening glow is auspicious here. Believe me almost everything is auspicious here. Reddish yellow. That is why crooks wear saffron.

    It is quite wonderful our changing seasons!

    **Early morning and evening glow is auspicious here.

    It sounds pretty wonderful there!
    If only the crooks would wear a different color than saffron
    though!
