    Grey cloud covers
    Blanket morning skies

    WHY…why
    I ask myself

    Of all the people I might have met
    …could have met
    Why did I meet you

    Why did the sun rise
    On the morning of our tomorrows
    That day
    In that way

    Why did you smile
    The same way
    As you did the first day
    Your eyes played
    Musical chairs
    With my
    Mental

    Why.

    Was it you
    Who touched the breath
    Of my soul

    As Autumn Falls

    Morning dew
    Moistens the deep roots
    Of love
    That grows within

    I wonder
    When did this happen

    I didn’t see it coming
    …did not hear the heart string
    strumming the center of me

    As ooohs and ahhhs
    Ride gentle breezes
    Through hollows and trees
    And boomerang off
    Mountain peaks

    I see

    Beautiful tomorrows
    Sans pain and sorrow
    And today
    …filled with the joy of
    Ecstasy

    As Autumn’s veil
    Cover’s my head
    And cool
    Creeps into the evening air

    I have loved you

    Even as
    Virgin leaves
    Lose their virginity
    Changing
    Evolving
    Into husky, old whores
    Who forgot their wrinkle cream
    Before entering morning’s sunlight stream

    I have loved you.

    ‘til summer’s sun
    Once again
    Come
    To warm the heart
    Of thee

    I will love you.

    "as autumn falls" is a result of day dreams at work.:) it was a boring day...so me mind drifted for a moment...and i found myself in the middle of autumn...smiling at the wondrous beauty.

    THANKS for reading...and responding.:)

    oneLove.

    Baller,

    Oh how,
    you allow...
    such thoughts of splendor
    to be interpreted in poetic fashion
    how your daydreams enhance nature's glory
    to definable verbiage...
    it is soooooo beautifully written...it must be heaven sent!

    Epiphany :heart:

    why, baller?

    "Why.

    Was it you
    Who touched the breath
    Of my soul

    As Autumn Falls

    Morning dew
    Moistens the deep roots
    Of love
    That grows within

    I wonder
    When did this happen

    I didn’t see it coming
    …did not hear the heart string
    strumming the center of me"



    With these words, and all they convey, how could it have been anyone else, or any other way?

    BEAUTIFUL!!!

    thank you

    alyce
