Of autumn and love—
Can there be more gifts
Than reflection and affection?
October extravagant
Boasts and delights;
Explosion of colour, nature
Reminds us to breathe.

October Days

note: The poem was inspired by the Midweek Motif, “Autumn” at Poets United.


  1. I love “Nature reminds us to breathe.” In the midst of so much bad news, it always amazes me, how nature continues her cycle of birth, death and re-birth, doing her best to keep us all going.

  2. “Explosion of colour, nature…”

    You are so right. I think it is the season of autumn that holds the most color, that color explodes out of nature. I’m so amazed at your brain and what it came up with. Lovely!

      1. Just saw your reply. Such a beautiful city, I love living the seasons through your writing I am afraid that I was born for the desert, I only love hot dry seasons, I visited Europe once in Spring and I was miserable, too much grey, too much rain and not enough sun.
