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...

This was so pretty, Jingle. I love watching shadows play. I miss the "back to school days" every autumn.
This is so refreshing :)

I feel the coming of fall and pumpkin pie. I love the imagery and the feeling evoked by this piece. Thanks, Jingle.
"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!
What a great poem. It really sets the mood for autumn...brrr
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!
being that is was 110 where i live a bit of autumn in the air sounds good! Love the poem as usual...thanks!!
This was really good!
Still waters run very deep with you My Friend.
Hey Jingle, that was really light-hearted; it made me feel floaty and happy! Haha, one of my favourites from you.

Loved this very much Jingle...very refreshing..you have said it well xx
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??
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
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.
I like this poem...:)
Good stuff, in time with the season.
I love the encouraging atmosphere in this poem... and, yes, the kids have gone back to school. Can you imagine the roller coaster here ;)? Have a wonderful weekend.
I am ready for fall now!
Ji, I couldn't think of a better person.. You Rock..
