dusk arising

falling into autumn glory

a September shock of pouring rain finds me
beneath city trees falling to autumnal glory...
..floating thoughts on pools before my eyes

.                       so gently....
.                       her fingers caress the keys
.                       flowing velvet softness
.                       into the 'ere silent dusty air 
.                       and our lives breathe once more
.                       yesterdays airy trance of
.                       love's sweet sonata

.                                             cascading golden leaf-fall memories
.                                             paint pavement wet love-lost pictures
.                                             in scatter of patterned rainfall tears

        Yeah he's alright a bit unoriginal and very pretentious. I don't think he'll go very far though

          Wow, this one brought a tear, from strength to strength my dear friend. The emotion in here is truly beautiful.

            Inspired by the colours of autumn against thunder purple skies.... some of the most beautiful lighting conditions we get all year and such colour. Yes there's a great deal of emotion here and memories of a pianist who.... but she's another story.
            It's always a goood thing to know the emotion has been conveyed through to the reader. Thank you so much Teddy x

            What an experience to hear romantic music while reading your tender and heart-touching words -- a winner here Dusk and must have this in my list of favourites. Love it.

              Thank you Fay. Was difficult to chose a suitable piano piece for this, She played Debussy often and very well, a favourite composer of mine now.
              Honoured to be fav'd by you.

                Well written.Well constructed.And well read by me.I love the way the words flow here."Will" would indeed be proud.

                • dusk arising

                  I don't know anything about "Will" and his works other than he is much acclaimed. I wont stand up to comparison nor lasting appreciation. I'm pleased you found this piece a good read. Thank you Neil.
