Before Winter

Autumn in Madeira by Jacek Yerka

Glorious colors dance together
to remind us change is good.
Temperatures barely lowered,
stickiness of summer is gone.
Scratchy throat from cool nights
promise crisp leaves to rake.
Reaping in crops, and seeds sown,
trying to store up sunshine
to carry us through harsh winter.

  1. "store up sunshine" I love that idea! I am going to try and do a lot of that this week!

  2. Reading this made me smile! Thatnk you for the optimism in the face of "harsh winter."

  3. An excellent response to the prompt...

  4. reaping in crops and storing sunshine..I like that idea
    then you can have a pocketful of sunshine on a cloudy day.


Comments and feedback are very much appreciated....
