Autumn Swirl

dscn2181

Steamy mug of spicy cider.
Swirling leaves a’tumbling down.
Gentle breeze evokes a shiver.
Summer’s casting off her crown.

Soft wind spiced with harvest’s fragrance.
Melon juice drips off my chin.
Crickets chirping final chorus.
Autumn’s fingers reaching in.

Sapphire blooms along the fencerow.
Zinnias tempt with pollen binge.
Pumpkin splashes dot the garden.
Russet hues appear on fringe.

Monarch flutters over meadow.
Floating fluff of milkweed pod.
Shrill cicadas close the season.
Asters sway with goldenrod.

Settling down to treasured pages.
Cozy corner. Blanket snug.
Moonbeams casting silken shadows.
Eyelids droop with Autumn’s drug.

      Thank you, Ann, but all I do is focus and shoot. It’s the Earth that provides the exquisite images. Most of my photos are taken on our 15 acre plot. The unending supply never ceases to amaze me.

    I agree with everyone else how stunning your photos are especially since I live in Michigan but in the Southeast part of the state. Adding poetry along with your pictures made them even more beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

    This reads like a gorgeous children’s picture book!
    Well except for the word drug at the end. You’d have to change that to get it by the censors. ๐Ÿ˜€
