Nature in Autumn

Written for:  November 2021 PAD - Day 27

"Write a remix poem.  Take one or several of your poems,
and make a remixed version that is new."

No dye or paint can match
Ambers, apricots, or crimsons
That nature arrays for
Us in Autumn.
Rising sunflowers,
Even in their abdication to a new season,

In lowered heads,
Nod in doe-eyed velvet

And pining petals.
Under leaf-sailing trees, dogs and cats
Trample piles of crunchy leaves.
Unless you keep close watch, you will
Miss squirrels foraging for winter.
Night falls and blankets all of nature's creations.

About purplepeninportland

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.
