*A Waltz Of Death*

The steps of rain echoed
chiming upon the roof
Late september was playing its usual tune
among the rustling leaves
commanding to the waltz of death

The oncoming darkness
within the breath of autumn
made itself felt
in its always unpleasent coat of mist

But I loved the fog that year

Pulled out from my strangest dream
you came along with it
A perfect shadow
from a painting of love

  12. You picked my favorite of all the seasons…autumn…a time when the heat/humidity of summer is gone and the cold of winter hasn’t yet arrived.
    I love the crispness in the air, all the browns, golds, reds, oranges and yellows.

    Beautiful post and a reminder of a season to look forward to.
