Autumn (Co-Write Thomas D & Moods)


a joy fills our hearts
upon sight of fire tones
settling around us

red leaves blaze, will blaze redder:
daylight shrinks into itself

i, for one, rejoice
at this slow approach to frost:
pumpkins on the porch

on its way:  All Hallow's Eve;
children: happy and giddy

perhaps snow will make  
a glorious spectacle  
as entrance that day

we look forward to flurries,
we look forward to the cold:

first, autumn's wild lush
eye-feast: harvest of colours,
palette of ripe fruit

we get ready to enjoy
warm pumpkin, and apple, pies

then, we'll pile the leaves,
make mounds to jump in feet first:
pirouettes and laughs 


cider-and-sweater weather

makes heat-weary hearts rejoice

Some lovely phrases and themes here you’ve both developed. A fine collaboration. I especially like the last two lines!

You two write so well together. Love the "fire tones" I'm watching this happening in my local park, I will think of you both when I walk tomorrow.
