Autumn Colours

Posted: September 27, 2013 by dukefrederick in creative writing, poetry

Autumn comes in many colours:
Grey as the road to beyond
And the early morning mist.

Red as the leaves on the trees
And the petals on the dying roses.

Yellow as the slices of lemon in a jug of water
And the pencils in children’s schoolbags.

Green as the crunch of an apple in mouth
And the woollen scarf keeping me warm.

Blue as the sky’s limits
And its reflection in the frosty lake.

Brown as the trunk of the spreading tree
And the flocks of sparrows in the air.

Black as my leather jacket
And the night sky/

    Good work SW. I particularly like the way you have used abstract images in this poem.
    It would be great to weave some smells and sounds in too.
