Utter Love
by Meg Winikates
December, 2005

I am in utter-love
With autumn light
In love with the air
That burns each golden
Leaf to crisply glowing shards
Of jagged sunlight.

I am in blue-deep love
With the belly laugh of
Autumn wind
In love with the tickling
Gusts of sharp amusement
Teasing hair and clothing into dance.

I am in rawboned love
With rosy boughs
Of baring trees, blushing
In the bright regard
Of afternoon, flaunting burnished
Colors to the whirling, yearning sky.

Jump into the conversation, the water's fine!
