Goodbye Fall

I’m running late with everything bar work at the moment but here is my Poetic Tuesday entry ( It’s Friday)

Thanks to Walt for the prompt over at dVerse and good luck to him on the next part of his journey. Our theme is goodbye.


Autumn is hanging on.

Leaf by golden yellow brown leaf.

Each drop, a gentle gravity called ceilidh.

Toward that final moment.

That last, grasping, fingernail moment.

Of that last leaf.

On that last tree.

That last fall.


No longer

This week it’s a word prompt-Treasure or Despair.

~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~   ~~~

Leaves fall from the Beech trees in Hardcastle Crags. Light from the sun enables them to dance momentarily. On the ground they are still. As is the world. It is not the same anymore. She has gone. Only her memory flickers in the passing of autumn. She was a dancer.

autumn to winter

effortlessly passing by
