Autumn Lust

Close your eyes 
lend your ears
your very heart
rustling colors
racing the winds
oranges yellows browns
vying for attention
from those who care
nature gets naked
look as I dare
the beauty
of gnarled limbs
longing to touch
flesh left too long
perhaps too new
to fathom even
oceans of emotions
swirling at cold feet
loving the dismal
such beauty gone awry
yes wind kiss me
know I am alive
I am thirsty
lying in wait
in each season
feel my autumn lust...
