Color Me Autumn--By Charlene McCutcheon--United States

Color Me Autumn

Golden
floating, fallen
leaves in evening breeze;
children rolling, jumping, catching
glory.

Charlene McCutcheon is a 73 year old, wife, mother of seven, grandmother of thirty and great-grandmother of 14. She has just discovered her voice through poetry within the last few years. Her former ways of expression have been through the media of arts and crafts. Her desire to share herself with others for their benefit has been the motivating factor in all her endeavors. She loves life, work, play and most of all people.

    1. Ndada, thank you ever so much for taking the time to read and, with your kindness, comment on my poem. Karen introduced me to the Cinquain form and I quit like it. Also I am looking forward to more of your wonderful poems.

    1. Maureen, I so much appreciate your comment that you can relate with me being a great-grandmother and beginning to write late in life. It is so nice, isn't it, to know we are not completely worn out or too old to learn more and able to develop our talents. I am looking forward to reading more of your poetry.
