secrets awakened by an autumn breeze

their lullaby once a safe haven

rise up as whispers in the trees

drifting hither and yonder

morphing as amber leaves

falling to the ground

renewing cause

secrets heard

I learned something new, Franci. :) Etheree poetry is unrhymed, but I hear the rhythm in it. Although I'm not a poetry person, I like it.

Interesting choice to convey autumn thoughts, 

Hard to convey such enormity, 

Syllables dropped where once were lots, 

Dreaded nonconformity, 

Can鈥榯 see an end at all,

Where an I going?

Autumn leaves fall, 

It鈥檚 snowing, 




That was bloody hard work, Franci. Think I鈥檒l stick to rhyming couplets and limericks.
