So… here we are, at the season of poem writing. Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to pen a poem of precisely 44 words (not counting the title), including some form of the word season.

If you are new, here’s how to join in:
•Write your poem in response to the challenge.
•Enter a link directly to your poem and your name by clicking Mr Linky below and remember to check the little box to accept the use/privacy policy.
•You will find links to other poets and more will join, so check back later to read their poems.
•Read and comment on other poets’ work–we all come here to have our poems read.
•Please link back to dVerse from your site/blog.
•Have fun!


Winds ramped up,
Detached the spheres of color
In leaf piles, awaiting death in plastic bags or funeral pyres
Such a shame, such sadness for my heart
What once adorned plain brown limbs with incredible colors, and shapes
Now reduced to blackened ash debris.

  1. Sharyl, your poem is beautiful and melancholy.

    FYI, I did not find your poem linked up at Mr. Linky. Will you please check and see how you linked it? I don’t think anyone can see it there to read and comment unless they are already following you.
