Autumn light spirals
Falling into nests of vibrant gold
Hovering gently
O'er walls of shifting green
And crowning the cerulean sky
In pearls of liquid glimmer.

An expanse of ivory skin
Once hallowed with the dreams
Of sweetly unknown 'morrow
Is now falling into the icy chill
Of a wintered reverie
Teardrops cling to silver'd lashes
As the saffron orb of sun
Falls just short
Of a straining soul's grasp.

Silence slowly falls
As steeled sky closes 'pon the light
Muffling sorrowed thoughts
The stretch of muted grey
Bringing forth simply lonliness.

Crystal snowflakes lace the land
The tundra barren, dead
Sweet ribbons of Autumn's gold
Have flown from reach
Leaving now
A spirit cold and forgotten.

Memories of what had once been
Are now just
Dreams which can never be.

There are places inside our souls -
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts -
that need to be loved this much.

Krista, a beautiful poem, shining with your wonderful imagery! I loved this much and I think you should have a book just for your own poetry too... It would be a masterpiece for sure
