Bride of Autumn



To those who commented on the previous submissions of this piece: I'm terribly sorry. It was a server error. :|

The story behind this:
Once upon a time, a man and a woman fell deeply in love.
Their love was like a blessing - beautiful, unearthly, surreal.

One day, like everyday, the man kissed his lady goodbye.
But unlike all the other days, he did not come back.

And never did.

What became of him... only dandelions can tell.

And she knew. She loved him too much not to know.
Yet still, she waited.
And waited.

The wedding gown, once new and full, began to wither,
until the skirts have become all but one layer.
Hurt and pain have stained the once snow-white cloths to a dull, tired yellow.

The wind brings fluttering voices of a faraway yesterday...

She weds with Autumn.

This is what I decided to do for ` niteangel's Autumn Edition Gallery.
I don't remember exactly how I got the idea. :confused:

A huge thank you to Cat for your help and suggestions.
And to Asthore, for scanning the crappy conceptual sketch. :heart:

Thanks for looking. Enjoy. :blowkiss:
