"Everyday in every way I’m getting better and better" - Emile Coue
when cold wind settles, blanket
of paraffin wax
on sogging stalks
i throw my words up in the air
& see how some turn to russet,
& pumpkin yellow
my eyes see the magic
magnetic pull of
"magnetic pull of autumnal light"YES! I feel this myself, every time we walk along the Charles River these day. Autumn is my favorite season. When nature shows all her glory!
We had this kind of weather today... the cold is really coming, but I fear that the leaves will fall too soon and give way to bare branches instead.
This is absolutely stunning, Grace! 💝 I love; "i throw my words up in the air & see how some turn to russet, gold & pumpkin yellow." There is certain magic that prevails during the season of Autumn 💝
SO gorgeous, Grace! I feel autumn's magnetic pull this year, too. I just love the wordleaf colors you paint here.
This poem has such a great shape and use of space, Grace, which convey the subject well. Autumn skies are so expressive. I especially love the movement and colours in the lines:‘i throw my words up in the air& see how some turn to russet, gold& pumpkin yellow’.
I also like the idea of throwing words in the air and watch them change colors. You and I both wrote about the magnetism of fall sunlight!
Bravo!!! luv thisMuch❤love
This is SO, SO beautiful. I love it.
Despite being overcast today, I felt that autumnal pull of changing leaves and crisp weather. Beautifully depicted.
Magic. That's the word for it.
I love the idea of throwing words in the air - you make them into autumn leaves, fluttering and glowing with colour. Exuberent.
These long afternoon rays of disappearing sunlight really do seem to have an autumnal attraction! Well done Grace!
Oh, this is beautiful! I love it.
Words as leaves! Yes. And that magnetic pull of autumnal light- it's real!
Such beautiful thoughts and images Grace!
Beautiful autumnal poem!
This is gorgeous grace. Such a wonderful response to this prompt. So well written!
BLAMMO, Grace! I could feel it.
I love the visual reinforcing the tossed leaves.
Leaves and words are both so magical, never knowing for sure what will evolve. I liked the "magnetic pull of autumnal light", a lovely way to incorporate the word.
I was pulled in from the start and enjoyed watching your words fall down in "russet, gold and pumpkin yellow." I really enjoyed the visual flow of the words here as well and it sucked me into the end with the "fleeting sunburst" and beautiful image of the Autumn light. Lovely!
Nice autumn poem.
Love the magnetic pull of this poem :) Beautiful!!!
Perfectly amazing, Grace!
I love the phrase 'magnetic pull of/autumnal light' - I think it has that pull because we only get a 'fleeting sunburst' - we have to make the most of it!
