Hey everyone. I wrote a new poem for a challenge on this Christian poets website I belong to: http://versical.ning.com. It’s pretty fun. Just a little community of Christian poets. I’m trying to shake things up on there by instigating topics for poetic challenges. This month, the theme is “Autumn/Fall”, and the participants could use any style/format, the only rule is that it has to be a new work. Here’s my offer, it’s an acrostic:
Start of Autumn
September 22nd, 2008
Sometimes change comes suddenly and sometimes it
Takes its time to come through.
As leaves turn from their green hew to
Reds, yellows, and browns,
Trees resound the coming change of the year.
Oft filled with as many sweet aromas as Spring,
Fall has a subtle beauty to it.
And we praise the Maker and Artist, Who
Understands our need of change, even
Though we may not wish it at times.
Unworthy are we of the gift He gives us,
Mystery, nature, and a season of respite.
Now we welcome Him with open arms.
