Late Fall Leaves

Late fall leaves
Black asphalt listed
Recently homeless
Begging their parent trunks
for mercy
Divorced from branches
Whispering to the wind
Or anyone that will listen
about unpaid aleafmony

No one believes
Late fall leaves.

    • Thank you, John. Cheers to the changing of the seasonal guard. I have my red wine in hand and had planned to write many more pages this evening, but find I have an end-of-week empty mind. I really appreciate your comments.

      • pleasure, K; this one struck me as particularly clever; I’ll have a glass or two of red in my hand in a few hours; and that might be the end of my creativity — or the beginning 🙂

    • Thank you, Joni. 💜 It’s so magnificently beautiful in Virginia this time of year. It’s breathtaking. This week, many leaves around here lost their lives, though, and I was happy to capture a bit of it.

    • Dear K.Hartless,

      I concur with Joni. What an eye-catching and colourful photo it is! Thank you. The photo conjures up vividly a dynamic autumn scenery involving falling autumn leaves in all their glorious colours. I am going to resonate with the spirit of your photo and poem musically. After all, those colourful leaves remind me of the 1945 popular French song “Les feuilles mortes” (literally “The Dead Leaves”) sung by Edith Piaf and Yves Montand with music by Joseph Kosma and lyrics by poet Jacques Prévert, and later translated into English as “Autumn Leaves” by the American songwriter Johnny Mercer in 1947.

      Included here is the version sung by Nat King Cole. It is indeed a very nostalgic song. I hope that you like it.

      Thank you for composing this latest post of yours as we enjoy the final month of autumn in November.

      Wishing both you and Joni a productive November and a wonderful weekend doing or enjoying whatever that satisfies you the most, whether intellectually, physically or spiritually!

      Yours sincerely,

      • Dear SoundEagle, Thank you so much for this message of connectivity and shared musicality. I am sipping my red wine and listening. It’s been too long since I heard this one. The drama, the cascade of sound. So perfect for this moment.

        May your weekend be filled with inspirations and enlightenments in whatever corner of the globe you inhabit. I think you for finding me here and connecting with me. I am honored, truly. 💜 K.
