Autumn's Harvest Blog Hop!

Here's a poem I've written about Autumn:

Fall’s Composition 
 Last Saturday was a moody Scot’s day,
sun shining like a reluctant penny
in the frayed pocket of some miserly
merchant. Billowing winds scatter away
the crimson and gold leaves into clouds of gray.
Over lush lawns shy pieces of sun flee,
these bright yellow rain-spattered leaves, off tree
limbs, giving witness to summer’s decay.

Favorite oaks let century shadows

play their hues on autumn’d knolls,
lovers’ havens, lethargic sun allows
no concern for devastation’s controls.
Nature’s silence awes and endows 

the ego with solace for our boney souls.

  6. It’s hard to say what exactly would be my Go-To Autumn Romance book. When I think real hard about it, I would have to say it has a sexy, strong, determined male that when it comes to love is just lost. Then there has to be a woman who is usually in need of help or needs to know what love and family is. Together they heal each other and love turns out to be their greatest gift. I also love a happy ending at this time of year, usually where the epilogue has them starting their own family to love and cherish. Oh….and definitely HOT loving too!

  7. I love Hayrides, leaves changing colors, Thanksgiving, pumpkin pie and Football.

  25. My favorite thing about Autumn/Fall is the changing color of the leaves, orange, yellow, red, even purple. They are so pretty. My least favorite thing is raking up those pretty leaves. LOL I love to curl up by the fire and read a hot romance book on a cold fall evening. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>
