Just Plain Foolish

Just a chance for an old-fashioned, simple storyteller to say what needs to be said.

Autumn inspiration

I've no idea how inspiration managed to find me to strike. Lately, I hardly know where to find me.

Grey skies
A flash of red falling leaf
lights the afternoon

Icy rain
gilds flaming leaves,
black-silver branches

Soft pit-pat
Full round raindrops
on fallen leaves

Hoarse cries
Dancing black cloud of crows,
leaving winter behind

Green yellow leaves
whispering summer's goodbye
as autumn rains fall

A cup of tea
and a ripe, crisp apple.
Watching through glass doors
the maple tree shivering
through October winds

Venus, bright angel,
blessing the evening.

Black branches frame
blue grey mottled silk skies
Crows swoop past
