Warm Memories – A new #poem

Today’s post is a new poem I wrote about two weeks ago while out on a walk in the woods. Fall comes early where I live. The leaves have been starting to change for over a month now. Aside from winter, fall is one of my favorite seasons.

You may recall an announcement from last year in which I mentioned that I was working on a new collection of poetry. As you probably were able to tell…nothing came out of it. Well, I haven’t forgotten about it. That collection has some work to throw into it, and this poem will probably be in there too (if no one thinks it’s the worst thing I’ve written). It’s just that I haven’t been able to write much in the last year or more. I’m hoping that more of these random bouts of inspiration hit me so I can work on this collection more. Fall plays a big part in the theme, so this is the best time of year to work on it more. Time will tell. For now, here’s my newest poem Warm Memories. I hope you enjoy. I also added a photo I took a few days ago looking down the valley at a colorful section of trees. Feel free to leave feedback in the comments, and let others know about it if you like it. We all need to be exposed to as much poetry as we can. It’s healthy 😉

Warm Memories


Falling leaves
fill our noses,
not with decay
but with warm memories.

Piling leaves
jumping in

Picking apples
and baking pies.

Morning walks
through crisp air.

through crisp air.

The world is quilted in warm hues,
the canvas of summer painted over.
Soon the wood stove scent will fill the air
and wearing sweaters will be for more
than fashion.
