Deciduous

For today’s Daily Prompt I am going for the poetry option – well verse at least!

Our blogs morph over time, as interests shift and life happens. Write a post for your blog — but three years in the future.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LIFE.

Deciduous

Tiny nodes appear,
swelling in rain and early in the year
sunshine.  Unfolding each to its own
shape and character grown
from earth to high under the sky.

All in a day’s work
the leaves produce an unexpected perk –
Breathable atmosphere
for all creatures here
on earth and high under the sky.

Days pass, weeks fly by.
Flowers blossomed, fruit ripens thereby.
Greens darken, moisture evaporates
Evenings shorten, nature’s realm waits
on earth and high under the sky.

Yellows appear;
Reds, russets, brown and citrus shades are here.
The wind blows strongly scattering hues
of autumn tints – no blues
on earth, just high in the sky.

Gales abated,
Skeletal trees as if they had waited
thus for ever free from anxious fear
of future snow’s weight here
on earth point high  to the sky.

Tiny nodes appear…

  7. I love the way you’ve captured time. It’s serene and hopeful at the same time. “For ever free of anxious fear from snow’s weight here”… Awesome!
