Rememory of October

Today when you kissed me

I knew it was fall again

I felt the year come around

I felt your flannel shirt on my skin.

And your arms around me

Felt different and the same.

Later I sniffed you

Carrots and soap

Like last November

Today, when you kissed me,

I tasted your tongue;

Shy, and peeking out of your teeth.

It reminded me of the way you would

Kiss me last September

Hesitantly and sweetly keen,

Like you were carefully tasting

A peach.

Today was a day

I could feel autumn in your skin;

Gold leaves, crunching on your lips.

Very nice poem. You capture Autumn well and the way that the season change recalls memories. The last line was very original and refreshing.

You capture the cyclical nature of the change in seasons in such a subtle and intimate way. Refreshing work.

Beautifully done! You end this wonderfully, wrapping the whole piece perfectly together with an elegantly poised flourish.
