September contest runner up

There are times when just a tiny difference is evident between a contest winner and the second place. This month was one such and the difference was so slight that it has been decided to announce an honorable mention for another fine poem and poet. So thank you loverly for your excellent entry :

An Autumn Come Home

You made me feel
as the young woman indeed
in the Garden of Eden
nude absolutely

No fear of Adam’s spear
he was meant to so tear

But youth has since evaded
we have been with burden loaded

The leaves and petals
have all withered away
come autumn now our way
smear all fragrance away
all colorful hues go too
whom, does autumn bare
as if she was another one
of his ware

We all love to see ourselves
in a mirror
like a tree
abandoned of all leaves
wrinkles left only...

Am I not depicting autumn?
Autumnally
as it is now coming

A lover of naturality
one time beauty
that I be

Wow autumn it’s me...

he was meant to so tear'

as yours Ian

we have sailed together these passed 6 years
stay aboard still
but not STILL!!!!
More poetry post I will ...

As the sand runs down,
into its next exit place,
we can hold the universe
to ransom with our words.
There in the swirling masses
of positive energy
we will form another place to play.
Never stay your hand
when grasping the quill,
find a memory or friend
to hold your point of view.
There also in the whispers
of that thing you call time,
is a nothing that is outside of the now.
Dwell with us in this now
write with your quill or tap on keys,
life swirls away at speed with great ease.
In your words to us here on this distant site.
Let the spirit wander,
that the words be pure
and the intent others eyes to secure.
Lift the dreamer high,
let your form be that of perfection,
if not so then toil toward that place.
Take care young Bard,
and know we walk together.
Take the path less travelled,
as the other is where many have had to return,
Yours Ian ..

you equate me with an
E A G L E
why will I lower my
SIGHTS
from high!
Sigh Ian you make me
FLY SKY HIGH BUT
IT'S THE RED WAGON on the earth
NOT AIRPLANES
YOU serviced 1942 on wards
High I shall once again fly
this time may be HIGHER THAN high
Hope no HM will dismiss me
to please

my wandering mind's
red what....
I will soonly release...
young bard does promise
