Fall Poem

Letting Go Of The Old

The poem is about nature and the calming effect it can have on our lives. I have always been inspired by the beauty of nature and particularly love the changes autumn brings. Simple things like a leaf falling gently onto your lap can have so many meanings to different people. The shedding of leaves can be viewed as Mother Nature's way of letting go in the same way we may need to let go of things that are holding us back in our everyday lives.

Autumn Leaves

Published: November 1, 2016

Golden, crisp leaves falling softly from almost bare trees,
Lifting and falling in a hushed gentle breeze,
Slowly dropping to the soft cushioned ground,
Whispering and rustling a soothing sound.

Coppers, golds, and rusted tones,
Mother Nature's way of letting go.
They fall and gather one by one,
Autumn is here, summer has gone.

Crunching as I walk through their warm fiery glow,
Nature's carpet rich and pure that again shall grow,
To protect and shield its majestic tree,
Standing tall and strong for the world to see.

They rise and fall in the cool, crisp air.
It's a time of change in this world we share,
Nature's importance reflecting our own lives,
Letting go of our fears and again, too, we shall thrive.

To the poet, you've found the beauty of nature.
