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.
