Fall Poem

The Striking Brilliance Of Autumn's Colors

I am always struck by the brilliant blue of the sky and everything else about autumn - how sharp everything appears and how the colors just seem to "pop" out as they do in no other season. It is as if the earth dresses up for her year-end celebration before going to sleep for winter's season. Since reading the poem "October's Bright Blue Weather" as a very young child, I have noticed this phenomenon...and it's quite real.

The Deep Blue Says It's Autumn


Published: October 2017

The deep blue says it is autumn.
The sky is never this color
Except for days of cool, clear breeze
And leaves falling one on another.

The gold leaves say the year is ending
In its wild-hued conflagration.
The gentle season of harvest time
And happy fall celebration.

The orange says Halloween's nearing
And Thanksgiving's not far behind.
The heat of the summer is waning fast,
And a peace fills my heart and mind.

The colors of fall are all calling,
And my heart hears their song so clear.
Gray wintertime waits, but let's all celebrate
The brilliance of this time of year!
