Autumn Sky


Remember
that day in October
colored in fuchsia and chiffon
adorned with satin ribbons
dreams, uncurled and set free

Remember
that day in October
dressed in roses and intricate lace
pearls of love beaded in my hair
my brown eyes, deeper than the earth

Remember
that day in October
falling from the Autumn sky
into your arms, standing by you
on nature's altar

Remember
that day in October
vows woven into silk
to have and to hold
never look backward

Always catch me if I fall

  1. This is a beautiful poem, Loredana. I think it is important, as one goes through the months, never to look backwards....as you expressed. We need to find something about each month to savor, not looking behind and not looking ahead but enjoying each day. And, if one has love involved (as expressed in your poem), it is even better. Smiles.

    2. C'est un haïku Loredana, connais tu les haïkus ? c'est une des formes poétiques que je préfère, force et puissance de mots simples, quelques mots qui en disent beaucoup sur les joies et les beautés de la nature.
      Joyeux automne à toi Loredana
