SEVENLING by Mrs. C (Here Comes The Cold)

Crunch of autumn leaves underfoot
as crisp air turns cheeks pink.
Scent of a fireplace somewhere in the distance.

Snowstorms around the corner
with biting cold temps, cold stiff joints
and little sun.

Here comes the cold, and the Season of Hope for all.

A DANDY LIFE

The promise
of sunnier days
comes as the
bright yellow
splashes of color after
long gray winter days.

A tiny
seed of hope floats on
the wishes
made in warm
summer breezes, as autumn
softly approaches.

Finally getting around to posting what I wrote on Day 30 for April’s Poem-A-Day challenge!

THIS YEAR’S AUTUMNAL EQUINOX

Autumn leaves
me feeling wistful,
wishing for
warm sunshine
and the fresh crisp air I knew
from my days of youth.

We knew the
days were shortening
and that the
snow would soon
fly through the skies; the colors
of fall would leave us.

This meant we
played while the sun shone,
we raked leaves
into piles
for fun and bonfires…we would
always want some more.

Living now
in the South, where leaves
remain green,
Autumn is
just another day on the
calendar to me.
