Poetry Friday: Autumn Celebrity

 

Autumn Celebrity 

Green says goodbye. 
as I waltz in; 
the great fall dance, 
set to begin. 

In morn' I rise 
into the sky, 
to shine a light  
you can't deny. 

I'm the lead of 
Halloween shows, 
showcased on porches 
with eyes aglow. 

I dress flowers 
and brighten leaves, 
dotting mountains, 
covering trees. 

I crackle in fires.  
I dance in flames. 
I am the spark,  
you cannot tame. 

I arrive with friends: 
crimson and gold. 
I am the one,
whose color is bold.

As nights grow cool,
both near and far;
I am orange.
I am the star.

It's Poetry Friday!  Today’s roundup is hosted by Linda Baie at Teacher Dance. She's hosting a Halloween party so I thought I'd pay a little tribute to the colors of fall. Stop by to enjoy some poetry and/or leave a link.

  1. Autumn is a little bit full of herself, but then, she really is all that, so we'll allow it!

    1. I do love the seasonal transition times. (I could live without the hot hot of summer and the cold cold of winter. Ha!)

  4. I have fallen for your fall poem Cathy. Autumn's voice is strong, self assured and decidedly confident.
    'I arrive with friends:
    crimson and gold.
    I am the one,
    whose color is bold.'
    Says it all really...

  6. Autumn sounds like a seductress - all confidence and invitation to beguile and bedazzle.

      I have to say I love your word "unabashed" with Kat's "beguile and bedazzle."

    1. Thank you, Laura. I decided to try a mask poem for this one. Before I knew it I was feeling the sass of orange.
