Special Feature Collaborative Poem--By Ken Allan Dronsfield and Blanca Alicia Garza--United States

"Autumn Skin"

By Ken Allan Dronsfield and Blanca Alicia Garza

"My beautiful lady with Autumn Skin;
do not be ashamed of the marks
that time has left upon you.
Look deep into the mirror;
You're still beautiful; you're still fire.
burning with intense desire.
Your body once was Spring,
then Summer, and now Fall;
but there's still passion 
in your body and soul.
You're skin still gets goosebumps
with a gentle touch.
Look into the mirror once more;
You're beautiful; such fire; such desire.
My beautiful lady with Autumn Skin."

  8. Thank you, Isha, for the following--

    An unusual tribute presumably to a woman who is loved. Difficult to imagine a woman writing this for a man! This would have to be a couple who deeply love each other and see beyond the downside of aging so in that sense it is a fine poem and congratulations to the poets for expressing something that many would hesitate to write.

    Yours sincerely,
    Isha Wagner
