Autumn Promise




upon this bench

under the autumn tree

where gentle leaves of changing colors

swiftly and beautifully fall

and the breeze gust

tenderly on my face

as it bears tiny fine drops of water

with every single one, a pledge of raindrops

then i look up unto the sky, as cool air

maneuvers the clouds

strains of brightness escape through

the ever-vibrant sun

i smell the earth’s fragrance

then slowly, lovingly, warmly,

you blew me a kiss


and right there, upon this bench

under the autumn tree

you promised.


for Eugi’s



  1. Beautifully written, like a love that will never fade once the promise has been made and it was sealed with a kiss in the wind. The description and detail tales of an amazing meeting that easily sets the image.


  2. Wow! Mich, this is beautiful and I love how you capture Autumn here and sweep smoothly to the couple on the bench and the kiss, the promise! Poignant and evocative poem! Well done and a joy to read!
