Royal Ball

Wearing robes of crimson, orange and gold
Short or tall and age young or old
Every autumn dancing at the royal ball
Swirling and swaying to the cool wind of fall

Moving in time to the musical breeze
Coppertone and bronze sentries guard with ease
Fairies – pixies and angels flitting about
Flying here and there among the royal crowd

The event only lasts a brief time each year
It happens when winter is drawing near
Forest and field animals running all around
Gathering up droppings from their royal crowns

Dancing so hard that their robes fly all around
Sending crimson, orange and gold to the ground
Thus with no coat their limbs are now bare
Standing there proudly not seeming to care

New robes will arrive all pure and white
Floating down from above what a beautiful sight
Sunlight showing sparkling diamond tears
Ending the Royal Ball for another year

Thank you Laura. I had an inspirational subject to write about! I love Autumn and Spring. However, winter is another story in upstate New York - Brr!

Kathy

You have painted a very original and beautiful picture of the change during fall, portraying it as colourful dance of nature.
It reminds me of "The Waltz of the Flowers".

I especially love the verse:

"Dancing so hard that their robes fly all around
Sending crimson, orange and gold to the ground
Thus with no coat their limbs are now bare
Standing there proudly not seeming to care"

Special Kudos to you for your unique creation!

Thy imagery propounded in pictorial words, supplementing with a befitting image, via tech. does vent out to a new genre of expression.
The selection of the subject matter - Awe of Almighty's Creation, narrated on the royal floor with all its paraphernalia.
Yet another understanding refers to everyone life cycle with every happy moment to rejoice till final robe of white. And those, who acknowledged the Bounties Bestowed upon them by Him, remain calm and happy - leaving all behind.

Thank you Lindsy for your nice compliment. I pray that my poems have improved since I first came on. I've had a lot of encouragement from my fellow poets on here.

Thank you for visiting Jazzy! I'm glad I could bring a little of New York State's beauty to you. All of New England and New York in the fall is a wonderous magical place to visit. Others would say winter is too - which is pretty up until Christmas, but then after that comes January and it gets weary. But Autumn is crisp, clean and colorful - and I love color. You are welcome to our Royal Ball every year - it is open to everyone! Thanks again! wave hug

Thank you Cherie - this is one of my most favorite ones that I have written. I'm afraid I have a wild imagination which is quite useful in writing something like this.

Thank you Nu. It seems we are missing out on the bright colors this fall so far because of the rain we had this summer and fall. Hopefully next year if God decides to leave me here on Earth another year. laugh angel

Kathy.....for every day that you continue grace the face of this earth it becomes a better place....however, as you well know, what awaits you is far superior to this cruel cursed dark space. It matters not if you are spared another year, or two, or three, etc........what matters is that you are a believer full of faith, and you do not just believe, you know, your faith is so strong that it has become knowledge....you are in a good place my dear.purple heart

Thank you Christian. The last 2 weeks have been a trial between my knee torn cartilage and my washing machine flooding my laundry room/kitchen/and a little in my bedroom carpet - I'm afraid my strength wobbled quite a bit - but during all the crisis - I kept asking God to help me and He did - He sent help in the form of my brothers and church family.

Runningshivia - I cannot delete anyone's remarks - including my own. At least I cannot see where I can - so best to think twice before commenting please. Thank you.

The leaves are slowly starting to change color and fall - dry year this year - hope for beautiful colors.

Kathy cool

Fall 2021!! Repeating again I know but one of my favorite poems and I love the picture on it. It seems this fall is going to be more rainy which means the leaves will not be as pretty as last year but I still love the temperatures of Fall!
