Autumn’s Fallen

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2019 by dc

That improvised face
Framed by a swinging fringe,

All doubt and gently pressed,

The spaced-out wanderer
Wrestling with distant thoughts,

Plucking fruit from rotten trees,
Talking worries into huddles,

Pacing aimlessly,
Wired and fretting,

Straying down streets
All greys and rusty browns,

Like autumn’s fallen too soon.

Autumn Undone

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on September 4, 2013 by dc

There are storms brooding
Crack-brained indecision hums
As open doors breath,

Our goosebumps quiver
As the breeze builds to whistling
And ideas circle,

We crave peace and quiet
But this isn’t the former
It’s autumn undone

And the crackle of fires.

Autumn Years

These old oafish ways
Are like the park as it turns
All camoflaged charm

Autumn

We wrote it on walls
And the weather erased us
Autumn was ruined
