Heart Masks Mind

Oh fiery colors, how short your stay,
Merrily tantalizing my sense of sight.
Against the blue sky, as if to blaze the way,
Towards the promise of a new day, bright.

It is in autumn that I reflect the most,
The end of the year spinning my mind around.
Like the trees that wait again to host,
My thoughts pause to absorb the sound.

Through the standstill, I look forward and back,
Considering past, dreams turn to a future of hope.
I wonder: Are the trees hopeful while they lack?
Or have they just found a way to cope?

My mind it is filled with worry and doubt.
Though my heart, a hopeful tree, dreams about.

    A heart-shaped hole, and a beautiful autumn poem about deeper things than seasons. I enjoyed your photo and poem so much. :)

    You stop my breath and still my soul with your photographs and your poetry.

    I am in awe of your talent and envious of the beauty you bring to each of us who share in your daily life.

    Thank you.

    You are such a poet…the way you see, compose and unravel thought, it’s a joy to observe. I’m so glad you push yourself to participate in PPL. Which begs the question, are you pushing or does it come as naturally as it seems?

    Stunning image; I actually have some I wanted to scan for my poem, but it took me so long to finish, I punted that, lol.

    I linked for ya, you know, since you’re incapacitated and all ;).

  21. Combined, the photo and poem capture exactly what I’m feeling as I watch our vibrantly-colored trees lose their leaves today. Bittersweet feeling as I returned from my walk.

    Very beautiful words and photograph! You are most talented.

    Oh – that was absolutely lovely. I like how you juxtaposed yourself with the tree. Is Juxtaposed the right word for that? hmmm……anyway, I enjoyed the Sonnet. Beautiful.

  25. Oh, I really do like this one. I like your tone, the way you use the words. It tickles the ears. I also like it because it has to do with fall, which I love, and because I see it much the way you do – a pause, looking forward and back, reflecting. Great job.

    What a beautiful photo! This is stunning!
