Blue Autumn

 


A Poem by wordman

Autumn leaves,

a whisper of snow,

the warmth from the fire

as the red embers glow .


Night fall comes

in shades of gray and black

not a star shining

as the clouds push them back


I reminess

as the day goes by

our love reminds me

of the colors of the sky


Gray and black

not a star in sight

i knew our love was over

this very night ...

My blue Autumn began in that

My blue Autumn began in that season in 1977.  As the (then) love of my life and I began to notices the frays and rips n the fabric of our relationship, the sky took on just the qualities you have described---day after day, night after night.  You describe the experience very well.

Thanks for the kind reply.  Yes, I hated it too for a long time, but meeting my second wife brought closure to the old issue, and I have, since, gotten about 90 tanka together to tell the tale, so I am putting it to work in a positive way.
