October's Brilliance

A Poem about My Second Favourite Season

Summer’s showers have passed

I feel that fresh sign of autumn

Blooming within me

The equinox had done its deed.


When I greeted the new day,

Feeling the rush of the wind,

I could not wait to dance

Twirling and twisting as fallen

Leaves during fall’s alluring ballet.


The first breath of October

Surrounds me like a shield

Deflecting all sunlight in the

Shape of prisms, scattered

In every which way

Forming tender watercolours in the sky.


I caught myself in an intimate trance

As the radiance of warm hues

Momentarily numb my worries

Of the harsh winter that lies ahead.
