ABC Poem: Autumn

 

Autumn, aromatically sweet

Before the arrival of a blustery winter scene.

Crowning of billowing trees,

Decorated and adorned,

Emerge in vibrant, resin-scented leaves.

Foliage overhead of lemon,

Green, mango-orange, and shades of gold.

Hovering sphere of light

In the deep sea-blue sky

Journeys from dawn to the arrival of dusk;

Kaleidoscope of sunlight brilliance

Luminating the marbled planet while

Marching on in measured time from

New moon to full moon and from

Onset of each new year and new season; its’

Pathway determined in ancient times.

Quivering rays of stretching sunbeams

Reach the autumn forest filled with

Swaying boughs of leaf-laden trees;

Translucent rays brightly display

Unified and blended scene

Vivid in rich hues of harmony

While the cooler wind softly blows.

X-ray vision silently reveals

Yellow, orange, and green veins hidden in minute

Zig-zag stripes in the cluster of autumn leaves

Now gently falling and floating in the

Softly flowing breeze.

Ascend

Last night, I let my heart and mind

Sink low into futile depths

of hopeless misery

as the streaming sun

 dipped down

Below the far-off horizon;

under the darkened forest

Of resin-scented trees.

But today, I awoke and did rise

To watch that ancient orb of light

Climb steadily upward

filling the sapphire sky

over the same forest now

Richly crowned in brilliant jewels:

Golden, amber, and hints of

Ruby red autumn leaves.

So, with a prayer to the Lord,

Creator of heaven and earth,

And hope I heard from

 his everlasting word,

I let my mind and heart

ascend

to the awesome

heights and wonders of

God’s never-ending kingdom:

Filled with His

Glory, splendor, and majesty.

Becky’s Haiku: Sweet and Scent

Autumn leaves fall: red,

Orange, and lemon-yellow tint

Emitting sweet scent.

I have attempted a new haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “sweet” and “scent”. This is often an enjoyable challenge for those who like writing short poem or like word puzzles and challenges.  If you like word challenges and haiku’s, then I invite you to also accept Ronovan’s latest challenge at this link and have fun: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

Becky’s Haiku: Touch and Miss

I reached to touch the

Sky; felt the lofty air but

 Missed the clouds up there.

I stretched high to grasp

A lofty dream but up it

Floated far from me.

Wind Whispering to Me

Wind whispering to me

Beneath the sun’s downward gaze

While gently whistling through the trees;

Dispelling a soft yet cool breeze

Amidst a quiet autumn day,

Flowing over the lapping waves.

Wind whispering to me,

Wind whispering to me

Beneath the sun’s downward gaze.

In a Whisper of Faith

In a whisper of faith, God calms the raging storms.

In a whisper of faith, God diffuses the troubles of life;

In a whisper of faith, God instills peace amidst the strife.

In a whisper…

In a whisper of faith, God shields me from the searing heat.

In a whisper of faith, God is in the wind sifting through the trees;

In a whisper of faith, God surrounds me in a cool, gentle breeze.

In a whisper…

In a whisper of faith, God protects me from the frigid, wintry cold.

In a whisper of faith, God wipes away my tears in the deep, dark night;

In a whisper of faith, God watches over me until the dawn of morning light.

In a whisper…

Nature’s SERENADE

 

Singing birds perched in the trees;

Eager, cheerful twittering upon the flowing breeze.

Rainbow brightens a once stormy sky;

Evergreens and slender pines towering high.

Nights filled with twinkling stars and a hovering moon

Against the black canvas harboring Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune.

Dawning sun beckons a new, glorious day

Edged with peace and gladness along the pathway.
