An Acoustic Autumn Eve

By lupus tenebrae

When the leaves are turning red,
time is rife with parting words
as we say goodbye instead

Of hello to fleeting birds,
and the schooners out at sea.
Time is rife with parting words.

Hidden in the poetry,
of the gypsy butterflies
and the schooners out at sea.

Then return with stronger ties,
to the pattern in the wings
of the gypsy butterflies.

An imagination sings,
bland acoustics of an ode
to the pattern in the wings.

Branches creaking secret codes
when the leaves are turning red.
Bland acoustics of an ode
as we say goodbye instead.

    lovely, twinkling, gentle and very touching in an ancient mariner way.

  • A former member wrote: Beautiful read, write more, get published, you have what it´re AWESOME AND AMAZING. Huggles...I love this and I love you.

  • A former member wrote: Very refreshing. May I ask when this was original written? I find that my earliest works make me cringe, but other find them so interesting. I enjoyed the part about gypsy butterflies. They have caravans longer than the eye can see.

    This isn't really one of my "earliest", those are actually cringe-worthy as well. You've heard of the DP College course, right? Well, this was my final exam, the sister poem to Robin's Song. The earliest work I have posted here now is Padded Room, and that was merely posted by request. Scholar

    Well that was an interesting piece and I have to say that is the first time I have encountered that rhyming scheme, always fascinated me to read a different style so thanks for the read ~Ash

    This reminds me of a relationship that might have been, just not in this lifetime. I felt a dream-scape. That's just my interpretation. I may have another after a second read.

    I find, upon reading this poem, that it cuts, incisively, to the heart of me......leaving me more than exposed, guilty, guilty of farewells, guilty of fleeing, where I should happily, heartily welcome the arrivals, no matter what colour they be.... alas, we live our lives forever taking leave...... this is poetry, this is blood-moving, mind-moving, forever-moving...... ~b

    I must say, it's an honour that my words could have such a meaning to you.That's much of the message I meant to convey, time is a current, not a discernible path, filled with greetings and departures alike. Scholar
