Leaves & Bark & Such

country life, TweetSpeak PhotoPlay, TweetSpeak PoetryPrompt





autumn daze chilled out

yonder, reflected, shining behind her

as dishes sudsed warm

(lather rinse repeat)


she took her way, slow –

as rays leaned low; she changed

clothes: sweater, knit

hat, woolen underthings – in town


she found the creek-sliced park

overflowing with fallen

things. she kicked colors around, flying

them atop frozen grass; scuttled up


a gnarled tree, safe! as a sea of leaves

rode sunset’s glow, don’t giddy-up the majestic

(take her easy, gentling the bite)

crisp with morn’s snow skiff – just


a kiss of winter days (and

nights) to come; home

at last she drove

a nail, hung her lantern out.





Folks at TweetSpeak have tossed down a poetry

and a photography prompt. All for one, one for all.

My offering is a full meal deal.

Leaves.Trees.Bark.as you please.
