Poetry: October Awakens


October Awakens

An October wind brushes airily on my pale face with unspoken wilderness,
The mystery has reawakened.
The bleak sky of dancing cumculus clouds overhead is an imaginative dreamscape
that plays the strings of my heavy heart
in this October scene.

The fresh dew of the early morning lays upon my moist lips
as it passes on a delicate kiss of peace.
And the mystery has reawakened.

In the east, just above the turning of the pastures,
the green of a past summer slowly fades away.
The sparkle of the sun’s glistening rays, travel into my curious eyes,
blinding me with new knowledge.
The mystery has reawakened.

Something lurks in this brisk October air…
Another unexplored dimension…
Another secret world.
There’s still a place unvisited that unborn eyes have yet to see.

The mystery will reawaken…
Another hidden door will open.
A helpless cry will enter into this overpopulated world,
But the beauty will continue to relish in this October dreamscape.

And the mystery, has reawakend.
Come find me.
I’m still here.

Just beyond the mystical door…

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
