Wait for me at water’s edge,
Where Autumn meets the sky,
Where trees in wigs stretch sapless twigs
And watch the geese fly by.
Wait for me where harvest hides,
Where Wind paints reveries,
Where evenings slip with frosty grip
By picturesque degrees.
Wait for me where Time stands still,
Where seasons wax and wane,
Where Dew withdraws from icy paws
‘Til only earth remains.
This poem really invites a person into itself and the season!
Thanks Christine! It has been such a lovely fall – I see that we need to enjoy the colour. A few more winds, and it will all be gone! 😦
Is your blog new or just an updated version of the old one? I see that I suddenly wasn’t ‘following’ you anymore… It looks great!
None of my blogs have changed; I’ve only added treetophaiku.wordpress.com. So you must have lost touch somehow. Anyway, thanks for following again!
I see now by scrolling through that your Collection is still on my list – just not the treetop one. So all is well! 🙂
P.s.: I did change the header.
I haven’t been around for a while – too busy at school – so it’s good to get everything sorted out in my mind! 😉 Rather like complimenting someone on their new glasses when they’ve had them for 2 years… I’m glad that at least I was right about the header!
I REALLY like this one! It’s a beautiful melody that’s so soothing.
Thanks so much! How is your week going?
Busy, busy. My laptop isn’t functioning so we’re down to one computer that hubby, kids and I want to use. At the same time. 😀 Fun, fun.
HA! Lessons in taking turns on the agenda, then?
LOL – oH yes! 😀
Trees in orange wigs; I can’t stop smiling. Lovely photo too.
Carrot-tops, all! 🙂 Thanks Gallivanta!
WOW-Wonderful, Mel–tugged at my heart, as I LOVE the phrase, “Wait for me”. God bless you BIG–love, sis Caddo
I know – I thought of you as I wrote, actually – that little number you did about someone waiting and never knowing why the other one never showed up…
Oh yeah, I’d forgotten that–one of my better “quirky” writes!
Your poem flows with a very picturesque. Touching 🙂
you’re welcome 🙂
So beautiful Melody!
Thank you Glenda!!
I can hear it as a beautiful Irish ballad played on a dulcimer! BEAUTIFUL ! Faithfully Debbie
Melody, this is an awesome ode to autumn!
Blessings ~ Wendy
