dVerse Quadrille #113

THE SKY, THE LIGHT, MY BRAMBLES

October
is autumn’s landscape.

Early,
its dark blanket covers night.

Slowly,
comes morning sky. A flaming jewel.
Rolling ruby rivers of light.

I woke,
and sat on the edge of day, watched
the black kettle night shy away.

Shadows lift.
Away my down-trodden brambles.

  1. I so like this Misky, it has an autumnal flow as well as tone, and the line – “flaming jewel” captures my senses.
