An Autumn Love Story

October 24, 2014 at 3:50 pm 19 comments


Once upon a time…


It was a season of color –

a parade of oranges, reds, golds and browns


the grand finale before Mr. J. Frost


his flakey friends came to town.



she was enticing, intoxicating ~

a stunning beauty in red


she captured his attention from across the path


he was the color of sunshine ~

a bright golden hue


when her eyes laid upon him,

she so fell in love with the view


everyday they would look upon the other

with a smile and a wave ~


 patiently waiting for the moment

when their tree would begin to sway



they waited



through the wind and the rain


one day it happened,

it finally came…

when these lovers from afar

were at long last

~ free ~

to be together

 ~ dancing ~

their last moments

 ~ aloft ~

      thank you – i originally thought leaves then figured trees but went back to leaves because i love the fact that they finally do dance… it is actually a bittersweet story if you think about it but also of renewal…they will return in the Spring:)

      thank you very much. I have been writing this for awhile – my older son felt it was cheesy…ok, so he is not fond of romance…:)

      • 8. ladysighs  |  October 24, 2014 at 6:07 pm

        You are probably lucky he is not fond of it. lol
        To be announced…later.

    Outstanding Kimberly, I really love this one, very sweet and romantic…and by the way it is not at all cheesy. 🙂

      thanks – honestly, Jordan has no right to criticize – he is the king of cheese and i told him he got his talent for writing cheese from his mom cuz his dad ‘ain’t got no cheese’ 🙂 i mean – jordan is the one who said he “wants to convert his love into a pain eraser to dry my tears” 🙂 uh….cheese – good cheese:)

      Thank you very much. I have been fascinated with the trees. I am sad to see them fall this year.
