Truth’s Soft Sadness

Autumn’s crimson
golden blondes
faded
crushed to black
as earth cools
sending to sleep
Nature’s denizens.
Warmth from the sun
fleeting
a sad small gesture of defiance
in summer’s waning days.
Fallen leaves
blanket the ground
breath fresh on the air
frost on the blades of grass.
Honking geese flee the sky
another herald of summer done
sand is boxed
sun set to side
now we must
return from fantasy land.
I must let you go
let you return to your life
ignore these crystal tears
for you have moved on
even when you say that you have not
but baby
I know the truth.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.

      1. I have plans lol. I had one last year I was going to self publish only to have computer crash and die. All work was lost. I got frustrated and discouraged. And I have been struggling with writing more then just the word of the day. I will get there. I want to publish before I hit 50. I have 3 years to get it together

      2. Mine is complete and I’m just teasing the formatting. Major life upset stopped me in my tracks and it had to take a back seat but I’d like to self publish by end of the year. Good luck with yours Jay-lyn. You write such beautiful poetry. Raw and beautiful ll at the same time πŸ™‚β€οΈ

      3. Thank you so much Christine. I really appreciate your comments. I use to believe I would never write again because I was not writong stories. I now embrace the fact I am a Poet and I am good at it. Took me 27 years to accept that. Sometimes I can be a little slow on the uptake lol
