November - Nov PAD day 12

photo by PSC 2016-11-5


In her early days she was bright,
cheery, full of light, an optimist
offering up riots of leaves –
so many shades – waves
of yellows and oranges
flooding into red, reflected
in wind-rippled waters;
thrashing shapes,
turbulent textures
against a blue background
a bottomless welkin;

but later,
her trees denuded,
filter a different light,
softer, weaker, all the while 
her darkness growing deeper,
disheartening, the shadows –
glum, gloomy, foreboding
a sinister storm brewing;
such an inauspicious end
to a month that began
with so much hope
and expectation.
