lukewarm autumn

In response to the Tuesday Prompt at GodogGO cafe


These  lukewarm days of autumn
when nature wears the myriad shades
dipped in crimson and yellow hues

where the path is paved with the
striated variations
of leaves falling from the
mighty shoulders of the oak
infused with  the feelings of separation
and deep longing

this gentle turn of the seasons
brings out memories
long lost–
gently folded in the sepia-tinged
papers of my poetry book

only to reminisce
with the warm cup of coffee
warming my heart and soul
as my eyes gazes
taking in nature’s beauty
in its grandeur

I look at the maple leaves
as swiftly falling memories,
on the thin skin of the winding road
in front of my home.
