Featured Poem: Autumn Splendor

By Anne Bonner
Cape Canaveral Branch, Florida


Autumn winds blowing

    Through the tall trees

Glimpses of red and gold

   Floating oak leaves

Birds on the wing in the

    Cloudless blue sky

Dipping, turning

    Waving goodbye

Away from the city’s clamor

    Perfect escape

To paint the beautiful

    Autumn landscape

Capturing on canvas nature

   For all to see

Forever etched in my heart and

    My memory

    “Cloudless skies”, to me, is an impeccable choice of words, speaking, as it does, of the subtle ways those rare days of low humidity and cool breeze in Florida can affect our senses. Felicitations Anne!
