October Melancholia






October 
conductor's dream 
summer's last grace note, aglow
octave low, crescendo, sforzando
staccato's sharp blow
morphs into snow

  7. Awesome picture
    is no structure
    to your creative thoughts
    and words.

    Just so you know,
    we've got the show,
    and the wind's
    staccato sharp
    blow.

    Though not yet
    Ho! Ho!
    Ho!

  9. Oh, I love all the musical references here - gives another dimension to the theme of Fall. What a lot of gorgeous pumpkins Jaime has captured in the shot.

  12. A chant in "octave low"! mmm Lovely. The musical terms tend toward a dactylic effect which is powerful in the rolling phrases introducing the new theme of winter.
