Fall is in the Air

Fall is in the air
Ground littered with despair
Crinkled, crumpled brown leaves
Trodden under heavy feet
Swept away by winds
Fear not fallen leaves
Like the phoenix rising
Hidden in your fall
Lurks promises of spring
Bare tree standing tall
Left forlorn, naked today
Shivering winter dread ahead
Breaking bondage of tyranny
Waits calmly for spring
Waiting for resplendent leaves
Cover its shameful nakedness
O’ ye of lesser faith
Chaining yourself with goals
Failing, hiding in shadows
Learn from fallen leaves
What falls in fall
Be back in spring
This setback is temporary
Tomorrow is another day
Take wings, fly away

This poem is in response to Jane Dougherty’s November Yeats Challenge day One

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

    1. I had to fly, sorry run, away to get my lunch. ☺
      Glad that I did not see Kat Myrman’s research about “ger-eagle” before. Would have lost my appetite. Vultures before lunch would not have worked.
