The Fall (A Poem)

I made this poem up the other day. I was thinking about fall and how the beginning of the season is the end of the leaves. They are colorful, but it means they are dying. It is sad and beautiful at the same time. I hope y'all like the poem.

The Fall

Colorful whispers dance on the afternoon breeze
One last, slow glowing waltz among the trees
Dazzling and twirling amid the branches
Swaying lively, taking chances
Living it up, one last soiree
A final tribute to the day

I took the photo accompanying the poem last week at a local park. I was looking for any fall color that had started here. We don't have much yet, but I liked the look of these leaves.

That's a beautiful poem and captures the mood of autumn very well. I like it.

I can only imagine the fall with your poem. We only have wet and dry season over here. Your poem is a lovely interpretation of the season.

A lovely poem describing a picture of falling leaves. The photo complements it well.

Thank you. I'm not the best poet but sometimes the mood strikes me.

I'm sorry you don't get to experience fall. It is my favorite season.

It was the only one I had at the time. :)

That was better than some I've read from people who claim to be poets.

Good job on describing Autumn to others.

Thanks. I had fun writing it even though I'm not a great poet.

LOL, there are a lot out there that I just don't get.

I've never met a good poet who called themselves a great poet. :)

A beautiful tribute to autumn! It's true that it's both sad as well as lovely for the colors of the leaves to change. A beautiful season indeed!
