    This one was inspired by: Falling Leaves ..by N2URSOUL



    Auburns...
    burnt cinnamons
    green goldens
    plus
    red-oranges
    accented
    your eyes...
    brisk autuum breezes
    grabbed your
    laughter and
    brought it
    back
    somehow
    seasoned
    by
    nature...

    Didn't know
    you was
    cold
    inside...
    wintertime
    and frozen
    still I...
    tried
    to warm you
    by
    my
    soul's
    fireside.

    Know now ....
    you never
    even
    noticed
    how...
    YOU were
    a splash
    of
    colors
    a fresh breeze
    to me...
    awakening
    something
    hid
    hibernating
    balled-up
    from another
    life...
    pehaps...

    another
    season...

    so soon
    you changed...

    a blast of
    cold
    air
    you uttered
    and things
    died
    all
    around
    but mainly
    I found...
    myself lying
    in snowdrifts
    trying to
    dig a
    new cave
    to lay
    sleeping
    from
    the
    pain...

    at least
    until spring...

    and

    the next fling,
    from a
    brown-eyed
    glance
    crowded
    corner
    elbow-rub
    "excuse me"
    sparked
    a seed
    to grow
    back above
    frozen grounds
    formed
    around
    no longer
    bound
    to
    my...





    september love.

    light pinks and
    bold earth toned greys
    scented whispers
    of chamomile
    on dry finger tips
    dusted
    with a haze
    of country-blossoms
    that hint
    chills of
    its new beginning--
    a month
    with no
    ending
    for us ~
    here we are
    leaving the
    indexed heat
    of August
    behind
    remembering
    September
    with
    the newness
    of 'true love'
    sprinkled
    in slowly
    with it's leisurely
    sway
    and an incensed
    embrace
    we two
    in the
    midst of
    the FALL
    where we
    ebbed out
    the summer
    IN LOVE
    with tall hopes
    of what is to come
    as we turn
    the page
    and see
    autumn smiling
    sensuously
    at
    her golden
    brown
    lea--ves

    N2..............A Soul's Portrait

    ...Its the smell of those leaves dying in blazing bursts of color that led me
    to believe
    in the....

    "US"
    of
    WE

    reminding my
    inner clock
    of
    life
    and
    love
    -in the moment...
    is all we
    "really"
    have....
    before
    the
    snowfall
    begins...
    and
    all
    that we
    shared
    "leaves"
    on
    seasonal
    wind-

    except
    for the
    pictures
    i took...
    with
    my mind's
    eye...

    and then
    I
    smile
    in...

    ~ c o l o r f u l m e m o r y .
