I haven't posted in so long but I'm back. The Poem A Day for November has begun so I will be posting my work here. These are first drafts and unfinished for the most part.
She came home from a day in Asheville
the sun still shining, the winds whipping
The bright leaves that adorned each tree
lay thick on the ground
She stared and she stuttered
until her senses adjusted
They will be back refreshed
buds will give birth to green in the spring
Thick rich green leaves provide shade
on a hot summers day
Fall will bring on the color
that will entertain and amaze
For now the trees can enjoy freedom
before that long winter’s nap.
