Tease of Autumn

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – InForm Poet – Carpe Diem
“Write your poem celebrating the day or celebrate the arrival of Autumn.”

Spring jumped in for
a second round, elbowing
autumn out of the way.
Today I see crinkled
paper bag leaves on
the ground. Two choices
of color–green or brown.
All trees in my neighborhood
have banded together in
Spring green. Autumn is
brick-red, gold, and pumpkin
orange. I am not seeing this.
No complaints about this lovely
dry week, and the shops are
stocked with pumpkins, hay
stacks, cinnamon candles,
and scary monsters that light
up for your lawn. I am ready
for new colors. Perhaps I’ll
buy some mums.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
