Today I have some more poetry + fall aesthetics for you. I’m really excited about both! I went outside just as the sun was setting the other day to get some September-y photos and then had fun editing to make them even more so. I interspersed a few pictures throughout the poem and added the rest at the end because I couldn’t bear to leave them out. 🙂
If you’re excited for fall, you might enjoy this post! If you’re not – well, maybe you’ll be excited for it now. 😛
Enjoy, my friends!
the year is old enough
for a new beginning:
colors fading, wilting, resting
in preparation for the final blaze of battle.
cornfields are poured into fat metal bins
in golden streams;
rattling weeds beside the road
tune their brittle limbs,
spinning seeds like notes of hope
on the currents of crisping air
that holds its breath in anticipation
of some great harvest about to
fall to the earth:
a harvest even the poorest
may gather in abundance –
overflowing baskets full of
the fruit of the year’s labors.
crinkly brown paper bags
fill with juicy oranges, reds, rusty ambers,
waiting to be shattered into
tangy glass jugs of cider
and steaming mounds of white or yellow
held between two crumbling crusts.
the rain clings wistfully
to the window panes while
september fills the earth with
the spice of a life both ending
Ahhhh! As much as I love summer, I’m getting really excited about fall and the fall feeling. 🙂 I hope this put you more in the mood! (Now hopefully the weather will cooperate and it will actually FEEL like fall here…)
What is your favorite part about fall? Which photo or aesthetic did you like best? What are your thoughts on poetry?
Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
