Autumn Scene on the Mississippi
Savor the season with Sharon Harris's delectable autumn poem.
reprinted with permission from the author


by Sharon Harris

is a shy lady, 
gentle and cool,
a bit aloof in her ways,
sharp sometimes
but beautiful too.
she dresses in robes of brilliant color,
from rust to gold,
from amber to shimmering red.
she is flamboyant in her dress
but quiet otherwise.
there is a deep secrecy in her voice,
frost on her breath
and the look of death in her eyes.

"Autumn" from "Four Seasons Women"
previously published in "Unspoken" 2011


  1. I had the joy of finally meeting both of these two women at last year's TS book release party. They are wonderful and such an asset for Minnesota writers. They are selfless and passionate and just plain delightful souls.

  2. Audrey, it was such a pleasure to meet you last year at the TS26 book release party. We wish you could have attended this year also but we understand you had some very bad weather. We look forward to seeing you again and we look forward to seeing your excellent submissions each year. Sharon Harris/Jackpine Writers' Bloc.

  3. Thank you, Sharon, for your understanding and for your kind words about my writing.
