This is really beautiful, I'm fav'n it! This reminds me of a place I walk (it's a state forest) that is just sooooo gorgeous and this poem made me feel like I was walking there right now, (I'm at work n can't do that right now) but I really needed this to set my mind straight, thanks tiff and keep it up.
Wonderful imagery fills your words with beauty! Oh, yes, I could read this one as a lovely look at autumn; but, just perhaps, it's even more beautiful as a metaphoric view of life. Whichever your intent, this one is splendid and an enjoyable read. :-) Sharon
I like this and think i understand what it is was that you were trying to achieve when you wrote it...i have a similar piece called colourful reflections....id love your thoughts on it...well done on your piece...it has a lovely feel ...and is the words are very pretty....i love nature...stormy
This was pretty. Like an extended haiku. I'll never forget my first time driving on the Merrit Parkway on my way to boston. It was like I was driving through a tunnel of trees. You just reminded me of that. Thanks.
Another Beautiful write from you
In this write I was easily able to relate
In my own life I constantly use tears for their healing power for it is true with every tear shed we are closer to becoming whole again
It is always a Pleasure to read your writes
I notice how you like using the word "exploding". You are sure a powerful gal.
Fall is truly an inspiration for you, isn't it? You are mesmerized by the explosions of colour.
I like the third stanza the best:
I am not left
for my roots
and grow long" --> although fall is a time for trees to go barren, you do not worry, for your root stretch deep. Beautiful, Tiff.
