Fall Rain Transitions

Last week this street
Was a green tent canvas
Subdued by a dull gray sky

Forests in the nearby park ridges
Already turned shifted to the
Ochre’s and cedar red leaves
Still clinging to virginal modesty

Just days ago I drove it again
The yellow canopy sparkled
Filtering shards of golden sun
On asphalt, grass and sidewalks

Yesterday west winds brought rain
A mist fell this morning
Yet big heavy drops
Serious and purposeful
Came in the afternoon
Chasing pieces of the canvas
Down to weave an autumn quilt
Where I walked with gentle steps
Expecting mother’s voice
Saying “Take off your shoes”

When the dull gray-black of pavement
In carpeted in fall’s rich harlequin colors
And autumn’s rich scents fill the air
I want nothing more than to have you with me
To share God’s bounty.



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

Mr. Yeats, this is SO pretty, and I can hear Mom's voice, too...

so very pretty...

...clinging to virginal modesty

oh wow...did I say this was pretty...

I love it! and the Harlequin colors too

Wilfred there's a very deep spiritual undertone to many of your poems and it commands a lot of respect for the gift of life which you obviously enjoy ...judging by the beautiful way you write about the wonders of nature's beauty....and this is right up there with all the rest of yours...
"The yellow canopy sparkled

if that's not a poet in love with the romance of life then I'm missing something...ethome

Bill....I love the thought of a "serious" drop ... there is indeed a painting of God's bounty in your words...and yes, always made more special with a loved one.  Thank you for gifting us with your poetry.

SEA-
I wrote this to share with everyone - and certainly you are welcome - Today my brown car greeted me as a polka-dotted masterpiece - yellow maple leaves from tip to toe - and it was only with great reluctance i cleared the winshield to run my errands. Thank you

Karilea-
I was a little afraid that 'mom's voice' might be too much  - Thank you for appreciating it.

Satiate -
someday I must ask you about that handle - I'm never satiated - Thank you

ethome-
Darn! - can I hire you on a per diem basis to respond? - Thank you so much for your great appreciation -I only hope I can live up to it. Thank you

Paula -
I'm not really 'up to' playing in them right now - but the thought will keep me going - Thank you

Victoria-
Thank you ~S~ - your use of color in your poems - inspires me.

Martie-
Complimentary words from the queen of this forum - ranks so high with me - I can only say thank you thank you thank you - Your appreciation means more than I can say

Wilfred~
What a joyful bounty of the heart.

'Yet big heavy drops
Serious and purposeful
Came in the afternoon
Chasing pieces of the canvas
Down to weave an autumn quilt
Where I walked with gentle steps
Expecting mother’s voice
Saying “Take off your shoes”'


Oh ... I love it !
Nostalgically I wander with you.
Just love it !

Mr Yeats this is an image that I needed to start my day. Only Mother Nature could do a patch work quilt so beautiful. Knowing from your profile where your from, I do want to say be careful of Old Man Winter he will cover up the quilt soon enough.

Could see it all, my friend, even your car. Beautiful.  Unfortunately down here in south texas about all we get are pine needles and oak leaves...and of course pine sap all over everything.  See it through your eyes though.

Remembering ... remembering, the gentlest of poets who is no longer with us ... but thanking God that the Word-Spirit of him remains in the archives of time ... treasures left for our unearthing when we need them most~

'I want nothing more than to have you with me
To share God’s bounty.'

let me know when it is LOVE that I find*~ <))><
