Autumn Embrace

© Teresa Perin
Watching the October sunsets
Waltzing under autumn sky
You and I
Green leaves rust, turn to dust
Let the summer die
Summer's new, searing yellow
Autumn's rich, mellow.

Disregarding rain and puddles
We stay warm despite the cold
Let's grow old
Storms will blow, come and go
As our story's told
We'll keep dancing, never rend
As we dip and bend.

Your lines have a wonderful musical rhythm, which is difficult to attain with this form. Very smooth and beautiful descriptions.

Absolutely beautiful. Makes me feel more comfortable about growing old together.

Helen said...

Mouse, you combined all of these prompts with skill and great poetry.

This would be perfect if you could skip the growing old part.

Grace said...

Great form too ~

Beautiful poem and it would be so wonderful to dance until the end and never be torn apart. Hubby would just grab me when I was in the kitchen and we would start dancing and only stop when we would start laughing so much. Now due to knee problems we rarely do it.

I have corrected Mr.Linky for you. Sorry about the error. All is now well in Linky Land.

Thanks for such a wonderful stormy poem for this weeks Theme Thursday. May no one rend it. Have a great weekend.

God bless.

Your "storm" seems so gentle and romantic compared to what the US east coast has so recently witnessed.

Tess Kincaid said...

The most lovely sort of dip and bend...

If everything else is the storm, you describe the eye. Sure is nice to find this together place.

After experiencing the storm named Sandy, I welcome a positive attitude toward stormy weather.
