In autumn nights a chilling air now brings

a lacking left in summer heat,

the soothing waves that once caressed

my lonely skin became my lover,

the roaring sea that gave me wings

and made me dream of distant places

another time to rediscover-

And dreams alone will warm my bed

in colder nights that lay ahead

a life which time erases,

with kisses gone among the waves

in autumn nights I count the graves

while holding on to faces-

  1. Hector, this is lovely. “Harvest”, has a beautiful profound sadness to it, brought on by the change in seasons. The following line is stunning, “with kisses gone among the waves”, it’s whimsical and tragic at the same time. A wonderful poem! Please have a nice evening and a terrific Wednesday, take good care. ~ Mia
