Autumn Springs from Summer’s Flame,
Eternal Passage of Season’s Change,
Dance of Passion’s Lingering Game,
Viridian for Copper, Elemental Exchange.
Primordial instincts embrace epic hues,
Fantasy’s Utopia, view Wisps becoming Brides,
Delphian Fairwell Fairies mimic and muse,
Rousing Shadows and Lovers, crimsons collide.
Pageant of Nighttide, Shimmering Bright,
Secrets Whispered in Primeval Tones,
Gathering Luminous, Spectral Light,
Ethereal Queen Born from muttering crone.
Dauntless Coppice, pursuing nature’s virgin Sprite,
Baptized, Nocturnal King of Twilight’s Beasts,
Queen Dowager awaits Autumn’s marital rites,
Mystic humming, via Motley winds due East.
Dance upon the Darling Midnight,
Twirl amidst the Foliage Aflame,
King and Queen Bedecked in Mirth’s Light,
Escaping Summer’s Clasp, Ne’er to be the Same.
Brilliance sparkling over Celestial skies
Approval granted, Russet Harvest’s grace
Verdict trumpeted, Change of Seasons, shall advise
Regal first kiss, as accompanying Timbers embrace
Spectrum’s Flame of Autumnal Dawn,
Seasons Shift, like Willows Bend,
Dancing Tatiana and Bold Oberon,
In Sweetest Union without End.
Fate’s Tale whirls on Heliotrope dreams,
Epic dance, adorning Violaceous Wings,
Crisp winds commence, Folklore sings,
Fantasy lives within Autumn Springs.
This is the final verse, inspired by Morgan’s seventh verse in a week long Autumn, Halloween, seasonal change, Mystical, light and dark collaboration with Morgan, from http://booknvolume.com/ .
I do hope you enjoyed Autumn Springs, my friends. I was honored when Morgan asked me to consider collaborating with her. Morgan’s extremely talented and it has been my privilege to write with her. I’ve grown as a poet and tried a theme I hadn’t considered previously. A huge thank you to Morgan for her patience, as well, as I tried keeping up with her enormous talent. Another bonus was getting to know a remarkable woman, a little bit better, over the last week.
I hope, if you hadn’t been following Morgan’s work, that you have decided to follow her poetry now. Become lost in her world of fantasy. I know I do. Love and many hugs, dear Morgan. You’re the best! Thanks again for for a fantastic week of writing.

Heliotrope…I love that word! It reminds me of a helicopter with guns.
Ha…yeah, it sorta fits, actually.
Every word you write fits.
I appreciate you thinking so, Duke. *tears*
Gives Audith a tennis racket.
I would play tennis with you in a heartbeat. I bet you would beat me though, as you’ve been playing awhile now.
*laughs* I’m awful.
*smiles* But it’s fun, right?
It sure is! Any time I have to run, I’m rather happy. Even though i’m old.
Yeah, this I know about you. Old shmold…
A wonderful collaboration between you two. I felt as I read it, that the poem had an Old World Celtic feel to it, one that shows magic and fantasy are still very much alive. I commented on Morgan’s blog after one of her stanzas that I felt like I stumbled onto a magical scene while I was walking through a forest. You guys rocked this poem 🙂
Hi, Gus! Thanks!! Yes, I think that’s where my head was to some degree while visioning this poem. Loads of otherworld fantasies coming true. I enjoyed writing with Morgan so much. Glad you stopped by her blog. You’re the best. Bestest, ever.. ♡
Great job! The way the phrases work together really make this special. I’m sure it took you a while before the words left you satisfied with the results. I love how it all flowed. Again great job!
Thanks, Jack. I appreciate you stoppung by. Yes, the words had to fit the scene, for sure. Morgan is a wonderful talent and I enjoyed trying to keep up with her fantastic fantasy imagination. Thank you, thank you! 🙂
