PROMPT Poetry Challenge #3 - Autumn

Discussion in 'INSPIRING MUSES' started by Fluffy, Nov 22, 2010.

  1. It's the season of autumn, where leaves change their colours, the temperature drops and we have festivities like Halloween and Thanksgiving. Simply write a poem about one or more things you like about this wonderful, beautiful season. You're even welcome to make it a poem about what you're thankful for, since Thanksgiving in very close by.

    I now present you with mine, about my love for crunchy, pretty leaves:

    Ode to Autumn Leaves
    Leaves turning bright red
    like a delicious candied fruit
    I see some yellow ahead
    As yellow as a rain boot

    Orange like the sun
    Brown is a treat
    All the colours are fun
    Especially under my feet

    EDIT: And, to get back on track, I will post a new one this upcoming Saturday. My little Thanksgiving vacation threw me off. >>;

    Fire in the twilit sky
    Smoke in the air at dusk
    Burning leaves, in autumn brings
    A scent of love and lust

    Twisted tress are barren
    The skeletal remains
    Leaves are gone and changing
    Calling winter's name

    onto the sunset, cast through night
    The quiet Lunar mist.
    Until the blackened haunts of night
    Until the dawn, it sits.

    Waiting for an answer
    Crying out the name
    In Autumn's chill it's left
    With death and doom and change

    Walking side by side with frost
    My heart is but a coal
    Racing neck to neck I thrust
    This season owns my soul

    Poetry is not my strong point! XD But I like rhyming?

    Sitting on the bench, waiting all alone
    watching as the leaves fall and thinking on my own
    Autumn's breeze and summer's end
    is my savior and special friend

    nice and chill with air so cool
    chipmunks running and acting the fool
    sky is clear, and visitors rare
    all are missing out on this Autumn air.
  4. Autumn

    Chilly breezes pass,

    Stirring the beautiful leaves,

    Of rich autumn hues.

    Harvest Moon

    Not a star in sight,

    In the cloudy dark of night,

    Shines the harvest moon.


    Children in costumes,

    Jack-o-lanterns smiling bright,

    Trick-or-Treat is fun.


    A lonely scarecrow,

    Keeping crows away,

    They shan't eat my corn.

  5. Snow has not yet come to pass,
    And leaves blow in the breeze.
    And I am but a little lass,
    Staring at the trees.
  6. The seasons come and go
    Marking the passing of the year
    But Autumn paints a canvas
    That calls me to draw near
    The blazing colors on the trees
    The crisp chill that curls around me
    As I draw a sweater tight to my chest
    And watch as leaves are blown free
    To float down where they may
    And make a carpet rich with color
    Upon the ground whereon they lay
