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.
