One Week – Autumn 12 – Autumn Tones

Crisp and crinkle

Dank and dry,

My heart sinks lower

With the darkening sky.

.

Twist and curl

Browns through green,

Things are tough

Now the sun can’t be seen.

.

Chill and chatter

Layer your clothes

Each day brings pressure

That nobody knows.

.

Flick and flitter

The fire glows warm,

Heart feels frozen

Just riding the storm.

.

Decay and rot

Time to hide

One thing helps

Family by side.

.

    I am not what I ought to be. I am not what I want to be. I am not what I hope to be. But still, I am not what I used to be. And by the grace of God, I am what I am.

    Another really imaginative and original photo – love it. And added to that, a really beautiful poem – traditionally I’ve often felt quite low at this time of year too – I definitely have a Winter personality. Lovely words! Thank you for linking up again!

      I’m starting to realise there is a pattern emerging. I usually gut a bit low in November and then lift again once Christmas starts to kick in.

    I love your poem. It captures Autumn really well. Layers of clothes .. hearts warmed by the glow from a fire. Beautiful.
