Autumn Springs from Summer’s Flame,
Eternal Passage of Season’s Change,
Dance of Passion’s Lingering Game,
Viridian for Copper, Elemental Exchange.
Primordial instincts embrace epic hues,
Fantasy’s Utopia, view Wisps becoming Brides,
Delphian Fairwell Fairies mimic and muse,
Rousing Shadows and Lovers, crimsons collide.
Pageant of Nighttide, Shimmering Bright,
Secrets Whispered in Primeval Tones,
Gathering Luminous, Spectral Light,
Ethereal Queen Born from muttering crone.
Dauntless Coppice, pursuing nature’s virgin Sprite,
Baptized, Nocturnal King of Twilight’s Beasts,
Queen Dowager awaits Autumn’s marital rites,
Mystic humming, via Motley winds due East.
Dance upon the Darling Midnight,
Twirl amidst the Foliage Aflame,
King and Queen Bedecked in Mirth’s Light,
Escaping Summer’s Clasp, Ne’er to be the Same.
Brilliance sparkling over Celestial skies
Approval granted, Russet Harvest’s grace
Verdict trumpeted, Change of Seasons, shall advise
Regal first kiss, as accompanying Timbers embrace
Spectrum’s Flame of Autumnal Dawn,
Seasons Shift, like Willows Bend,
Dancing Tatiana and Bold Oberon,
In Sweetest Union without End.
Fate’s Tale whirls on Heliotrope dreams
Epic dance, adorning Violaceous Wings
Crisp winds commence, as Folklore sings
Fantasy lives within Autumn Springs
I am so Delighted to have spent the week working with Audrey on this collaboration. I have loved Audrey’s poetry for so long now and have very often wanted to jump into her Lyrically Dancing words to spin and twirl with her, as her verses ever seem to me like she is Dancing…and NOW We Have shared a Dance Together :) It has been a Dream of a Collaboration and I simply Adore the Tale we’ve woven together. Audrey, Thank You Thank You Ever So~ :)
This poem of the change of seasons, of Halloween, of Light and Darkness is the culmination a week long collaboration with Audrey Dawn from http://oldestdaughterredheadedsister.com whose poetry and beguiling perspectives ever Entice and Inspire me. I am Delighted and Honoured to have worked with her on this poem. Nothing was pre-Planned, nothing pre-scripted…I wrote verse one, then after reading it, Audrey wrote verse two which inspired verse three by me….and so on. Each verse we wrote Inspired the next, taking us on a week long Journey into the Lyrically Unknown.
