Golden Carpet


fall rolls out her golden carpet,
as the trees change into their evening gowns.
the wind rustles with cool excitement,
greeting the day with a brisk and cheery air.
the sun beams down one lingering ray of warmth,
     a dignified good-bye until spring's dawn.

warm hues envelop our little sphere,
romancing the world before winter's hostile entrance.
crisp autumn air makes a fierce fusion with cozy campfires,
like a couple that doesn't quite get along,
     but their passion makes up for it.

if spring brings love in the air,
autumn brings romance and snuggles and long conversations.
autumn brings slow walks, enjoying the moment, and gratitude.
the world is alive for a moment more before her slumber,
and all i want to do is dance in the leaves,
breathe in the sunshine, and drink in the splendor.

will you hold my hand a little tighter, love?
let's pause time and forget our deadlines.
we'll run far away and discover things we've never seen before.
we'll explore until we get lost and can't find our way back.
we'll laugh at the beauty and wonder at autumn's aesthetic allure.
this world is too sentimental and stunning to miss.
