Autumn Fantasy

Autumn Fantasy

In my autumn fantasy
Endless miles of blazing color
Spreads beneath my feet,

Light mist lingers through the trees;
Swirling gently with each breeze
Colors mesh in focus
Then fade;
In waves of brilliance and subtle haze,

I gather leaves;
Their unique beauty surrounding me
Inhaling their scent appreciatively,

I'd gladly coexist in this fragrant mist
My gaze defining the trees shapes and forms;
As I feel the sun on my face
Now warm,

I could stroll forever
In this place,
In awe I am of beauty
As only seen in a dream,

And when the sun has faded from the sky,
On a bed of soft leaves
Will I lie;
To dream again
In ecstasy
Of my autumn fantasy.

  6. Really nice Autumn Wreath encasing a path into Autumn land. We are not having much of a Fall this year. Leaves are going from green to dead like overnight. Not that much color. Oh well, at least I can enjoy the colors in your image.

  7. Preston, that is sad! The Fall colors are always looked forward to, such a shame to miss them! Thank you for stopping by! :)
