Autumn Thoughts

Leaves of Autumn, raindrops

Beauty

In the brown and gold

Tears for times

Past when we

Young and verdant without care

Lived the high life

Reflections on Prayer

Shadorma poem about prayer--prayer plant photo
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2014

While caring for my Prayer Plant I noticed some of its leaves were a healthy looking, large and bold green, but others were weak looking, curled up or shriveled up brown.  This got me to thinking upon my prayers which are sometimes large and bold, other times weak or filled with doubt, and even at times non-existent.  Thus, this poem was inspired and created as I was reflecting.

Autumn’s Arrival

Autumn Woman
No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one autumnal face.
~John Donne

Autumn arrived yesterday all aglow
Dressed in red, orange, brown and yellow

A pallet of color she held in her hand
and she used it to change the scape of my land.

A bounty of fruit she left in her wake
the abundance of which I could freely take

Color so vibrant brought my senses alive
Autumn! I am so glad you chose to arrive!

NaPoWriMo 2013, #28–Color Choice

Red is favored many a time ,
But how can I choose it over lime?
And orange, I really like a lot,
But purple’s great too, is it not?
Yellow is so bright and cheery,
Pink delights when I’m feeling dreary,
Blue calms me with it’s gentle hue,
Yet a light shade of green does that too!
The glitter of gold I love to see,
But the shine of silver is also special to me.
Black has it’s place, as does brown,
How can I possibly choose a color to crown?
Picking a favorite is to hard for me,
For I like them all, as you can see.
Therefore, the choice I’ll leave undone,
For there’s just too many colors to focus on one.
