Living the Night

by cmapillay
 “People cry not because they are weak, but because they have stayed strong for too long”
Yes, I am living the night
For the world outside
But there is a storm raging
In my world inside

Limerick – Fall

by Venkat

Mr. and Mrs. Bee went to skydive to be light

Balloons in belly of a sky, in suits tight

Lighter than air, thin as cloud

Feather landing on moon, proud

Quuen-in-law stung, they so fell back in fright

leaves changing color
bird’s flying south

October 4, 2017


by Rev Cheryl Birch


Hazy light
Sun low in sky
Longer night
Summer flowers dim and die

Harvest of corn
Bales of hay
Fields look falorn
Pine trees sway

But, orange galore!
Gourds and pumpkins abound

Fall Welcome

by J L Hunt



Cool breezes & hot cider…

Pumpkin pies & cozy fires,

Freshly picked apples, filling baskets…

Warmed toes under thick blankets

Fallen leaves crumpling under our feet…

Children going trick-or-treat

Fall, welcome…

Welcome, fall  ©JLH

By the warm birch trees
In the cold.
I can tell it’s cold. —

The tall white birch trees
Stand like soldiers on guard

I am truth
in its most natural form;
I have brothers and sisters who are
tho just as true.
I sometimes stand alone

A Fond Farewell

by Nick Anthony

Veins of auburn and burnt orange
Adorn the wooded mountain side.

A dense mist shrouds the valley
Hanging so low as to blur
The boundary between cloud and fog.

Winter comes to town

by Jem Croucher


Autumn at St Mary’s
the yellow and the gold
the sunshine on the falling leaves
hides the biting chill
Crunching footfall as I walk
A blanket crisp and brown
as breath escapes in tiny clouds
and winter comes to town

Autumn stepped out of Summer

by Rev Cheryl Birch


Pumpkins, squash, dried corn
Yellow leaves, red and orange
Windy blustery days
Walking through a corn maze

Flowers fading, some brown
Fields a golden crown

Fresh, cool breeze…

Crimson leaves,

An array of splendid colors.

Gusts of wind, with sounds of hymns

I Rise, I Fall-We Rise, We Fall

by dinamicdynasty

I rise, I fall

That is the mode of life – i’m told

Never knowing where next to fall,

I glide along with society,

for that is the code.

Autumn’s Scenery

by Colly


Autumn leaves toss to – fro on the road;

blithesome, windswept, one or two rise.

Stop, hesitate, cartwheel along my side.

Walking On Eggshells

by graypoet


Walking down a path and something special happens
Two hearts collide and it seems that things are right
How it happened is not exactly known, but you proceed
Before long thoughts of each other occupy your night.

Rain drizzling down

Filtering slant of light beams

Arc of a rainbow.

Pouncing cloudlet sky
Bellowing wind whistles
Whirlwind of leaves.

~ Autumns Arrangements

by ladyliterati

~ Autumns Arrangements

Crimson, lemon-drops, tangerine
Leaflets morph from their colours green,
A grand display of Mother Natures cape
Meandering, colours emerge in her wake

Her breath, a frosty hint exhaled
Lies across the land, flowers paled
And pumpkins, gourds, stalks reaped
Stand on display arranged at their peak

The Turning

by Jem Croucher


Turning now
the green will fade
to liquid gold
of Autumn shade
Past equinox
less sunlight hours
But warm enough
for many flowers

and took some green away
Then revealed its hoarded treasure
with some gloating yesterday

Off The To Do List

This morning
the traffic was stalled.
At the red light
I looked at you.
It had begun to rain
You looked at me.
