An Autumn Sonata

I.

Here we go again

a sudden change of weather

break from summer heat

 

Learn to laugh again

to jump in a pile of leaves

savor autumn joy

 

Maybe fall in love

with the silence of Autumn

the still in the air

 

Some trees hold tightly

to the green leaf in the past

refuse season’s change

 

Now all leaves fallen

from the one orange in the green

to absence of green

 

Snow will be here soon

friends will gather one more time

before the first storm

 

Through an abrupt chill

preparations for winter

found in browns and reds

 

Too quickly a change

to ponder the exact time

all of this occurred

II.

 

Time to find balance

among colorful raked leaves

displaced by the wind

 

Time to pull the rake

time to pile what once was green

jump into once was

 

Here with hot coffee

watch steam rise into the air

like these Autumn thoughts

 

A seasonal sound

strum of Autumn sonata

tradition of peace

 

Embrace changing time

hold tight orange and yellow

harvest something new

 

To reach Autumn years

to touch the bright Autumn moon

a falling of leaf

 

Allow us a place

experience early Fall

notes of perfection

 

Soon to bag these leaves

clean up before winter snow

our hibernation

III.

 

Hike through the crisp air

early morning when leaves fall

see your breath again

 

Morning brings new frost

dew hidden from the summer

dances Autumn dance

 

Forgotten bare limbs

show themselves to us once more

tighten our jackets

 

Pulling up mittens

do we search for perfection

in the evergreen?

 

My heart skips a beat

in these branches who stand bare

fragile before me

 

Hot Acorn Squash Soup

warms these quickly cooling days

fall colors arrive

 

This time of center

of pine cone centerpiece

early morning walks

 

Contemplate the change

through the way we sense the world

as the leaves crumble

Jamie Lee Hamann

Things have changed over the years. My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I have a passion for writing short fiction and poetry. I started writing for TCE around 2015 and since then I have finished two collections of poetry "Six Years of Service" and "The Rhyme of the Ancient Middle Class" both available on Amazon and plans for more. I share a weekly poem for TCE every Saturday. I started work on my first novel and I am using TCE to share my progress as I go. I share new excerpts of this work every weekend. A Science Fiction novel that I hope is enjoyable to read. I currently live in Lemmon Valley NV with my family. I am excited to share my poetry and my writing. If you desire to find my other work on the internet feel free to stop by my website simplepoetics.weebly.com. The website offers articles on poetry, poems, and links to all my other writing.
