Octobers style

October’s Style

Natural, Beauty

We kicked laughingly through the fallen leaves
of others  love’s at first try
And it was October when you told me
it was over although not why

At the dance that week I saw you
and him  and learned of the sinking of hearts
Once again  I would know how love fails a boy
and how  October plays small parts

Though I still love October and my memory still feels
through that pretty blouse
I know that autumn comes to all loves
and Oh how love can leave a house

The other day I saw you and all these
years and years later
Oh how we have aged and aged
but what does it matter

We didn’t speak but in a smile
you held my gaze for a long  long while
as in so many questions there is no answer
it isn’t October’s style

Sometime in my life, I started to write about my life journey, in poetry, in story perhaps to sort them out and enter them into a place of safekeeping. The soul of the writer is perhaps best described in their words, emotions and thoughts. If these poems or stories touch something inside you then maybe I have succeeded in sharing. I will not write about my self in profile, because self isn't so important in writing. Only the journey in words and the sharing are important. Why would we say "Now about me!"... I'd rather write about life, nature, serenity ...

    I like this poem, Ed. It is easy reading and flows nicely. ‘First loves’ seems to be a trend right now to write about and it is always sad and memorable. Well done, my friend.

    Nice work Ed, an emotive work of that early love that never leaves our memory, even in age. Well penned with the feel of October to set the stage for a heart warming remembrance. Great work.
