Toast Your Days With Flying Fantasy






Kids have gone back to school,
Raindrops tease the deserted pool,
Tree shadows flicker on the wall
As the wind sings the rhythms of the Fall.
Sharpen your eyes,
Identify ghosts in human disguise.
Watch the musicians play
As leaves start to decay.
Sail on the prolific ocean
While pumpkins go ripen.
Toast your days with flying fantasy,
Prepare for the season's abundance and intimacy.

This poem is written for Thursday Poets Rally Week 27...

"the season's abundance and intimacy" is what makes autumn my favorite time of year! All those warm feelings wrapped up tight in five words--great imagery, Jingle!

I was just thinking that fall is in the air. The crickets are out and the nights are cooler. The pumpkins are orange and the butternut squash is mellow yellow. Nice poem!

Kids sure way love you-don't they??
Cute words- as caution while they grow up enjoying the best period of their Life- unknowingly..
Could I go back in time again??

lovelyannie79 said...

Preparing for the intimacy of the season is a beautiful concept...I immediatly find myself excited for the coming fall while also feeling the emptiness of the transition time...well done

storylinegirl said...

You capture the feeling of a changing season so well. I enjoyed reading this poem. It is succinct and clear. Also the tone reminds me of how they'd describe back to school in books like Anne of Green gable. I don't know why ,but it does.

Dabir Dalton said...

Wem said...
