Autumn shades

I’ve painted a picture of you

though there are spaces

filled with dark shades of mystery

parts that I cannot clearly see.

Your passion runs deep in red hues

Crimson, scarlet and cherry-red,

sobered by the aquatic look in your eyes,

grounded river banks in verdant lush.

I’ve captured your boundless longing,

your  clever wit, as well as your quest

to escape the monotonous pathways of life,

traced in your lithe movements of intrigue.

The yellow glows of your sunshine

state of mind, I smudge and tinge

with magenta and blushes of pink

accentuating  your romantic disposition.

I’ve seasoned you in Autumn blends

in celebration of the highlights of Summer

and the shedding of the old for the new.

That is the soulfulness I see in you.

    1. Hello Kunal.Oh I don’t think we’ll ever quite have those autumn colors in the picture. Though Autumn is gently creeping in,my garden is still lush green and the Roses and flowers are still blooming and today’s expected temperature is about 30 degrees. Do you know that we have the largest manmade forest? I also think we have the best weather in Johannesburg. What is your weather like now?

      1. Oh – too bad. I grew up on the East coast so I know how bad humid can be but at least it was lush and colorful with subtropical vegetation. No greenery either? You have my sympathy and I must practice more gratitude:-)

      2. Hahahaha….. Bombay is concrete and more concrete. And with these new steel & glass buildings, the heat reflects. Unfortunately, our city planners (I’m being polite) don’t have any concept of green lungs. And the few open spaces there are, are often hand-in-glove developed into buildings coz of the exorbitant price of real estate! In that respect, inspte of being the commercial capital, we are way down the list of quality of life. Irksome! 😦

      3. Anyway, I suspect I’m distracting you from your work. My calendar still allows me to work from home and the Easter holiday feeling hasn’t warn off yet so I’m just soaking up a beautiful day. Best regards. Chevvy 🌷
