Poetry Monday

Poetry Monday is brought to us by Diane of On The Alberta Montana Border (you can find her in my sidebar)  Diane thought Monday could use a little zing.  Each week she offers us a theme.  You can use it or not.  It's just there to help you get started if you need a little assistance.  Why not join in and write, read, critique.... we love company.

This weeks theme is NATURE

A thin cold light,
a ragged sky,
with geese and raptors
flying high. 
Trees resplendent in autumn dress
make fireworks in the sky
as Mother Nature celebrates
another season gone by.
The seasons come
the seasons go
and soon the cold and wild winds blow
and bring us
darkness, ice and snow
as bundled up
to work we'll go
but always in our hearts will glow
the promise that is spring.


  1. A nice description of nature Delores, well done my friend.

  2. Lovely. I do love the arboreal fireworks, and the elegance of winter, and the vibrancy of spring. Summer not so much.

  3. I'm sure you are looking for some respite from the heat, but I wouldn't be looking forward to the ice and snow part, no matter how pretty it gets.
    Lovely poem.

  4. Oh, how lovely! The seasons are a wonderful topic; alone or together in a poem they inspire so much. Enjoy your day!

  5. It reminds me all too well what we will be seeing in a month or two - especially "ragged sky" - I love that.

  6. SO well done, Delores!
    Brrrr . . . But I keep on hoping that winter will at least stop some of the forest fires this year!

  7. Your poem is very good, Delores, and almost makes the cold and the beauty of the next two seasons to be something to enjoy..


It's lovely to know someone else is out there. Please leave me a comment...pretty please.
