The Welcoming

Fading rose

October

Flew in this morn

Trees waved their greeting

Leaves danced around her feet

The sun

Welcomed her with a bright kiss

Banishing morning dew

As roses bowed

Their heads

Butterfly Cinquain

NaPoWriMo–Day 18– “prompt, which takes us from 2015 back to the 1700s. After all, it’s the eighteenth of April, which means that today is the 240th anniversary of the midnight ride of Paul Revere! Today, in keeping with the theme of rush and warning, I challenge you to write a poem that involves an urgent journey and an important message. It could historical, mythical, entirely fictional, or memoir-ical.”

This Triolet is my take on today’s NaPoWriMo prompt!  Can anyone relate? 🙂
