Lessons of Fall-Poetry in Five

It’s Friday, (and although I am a little late)-I am bringing you Poetry in Five with today’s special word being FALL.  I chose to go the direction of the seasons, with double meanings (as I often like to do when writing poetry) in both talking about the literal season of Fall , and season’s of life as well.    I hope you enjoy today’s delight!  Let me know what you think… Here goes:

Five Minute Friday



Lessons of Fall:


Leaves of Gold-

(their former green),

The richest color

briefly seen.

A canopy

of purest light,

Falls glittering down-

into the night.

As winds of change

draw ever near,

The trees-

They seem to have no fear.

They know it’s time-

They must transform.

And with that,

Something new is born.

And so it’s been,

Since the dawn of time-

All things must learn,

To bend with clime.

    I love your poem. You are incredibly talented. I love the winds of change. Well, I don’t love them while I am in them, but they usually end up being better. Sometimes that is hard to remember.

      Thanks so much for your kind words Pattyann-they mean so much to me. I hope someday to do something more with my poetry- it is a dream of mine! So if someone likes what I write, it makes me feel these things are a little more possible 😀 . While I wait for my ship to come in (haha) I am grateful for a chance to write and share during FMF with all of the lovely ladies. I tend to not love the winds of change while in them either -I suppose many of us are that way.
