OCTOBER

Between 2 Trees 2

-i-

Dahlias stand upright against Autumn skies
long after the sunflowers have fallen;
Flowers have turned to fruits,
empty spaces grow in the garden.

-ii-

Flowered teapots speak of happy days,
sit pretty in the cupboards
waiting for the day
steeped in friendship and reminiscence.

-iii-

Voiceless faces roam the wilderness
drowning in words, seeking truth
heavy hearts seek solace in a drifting leaf
their shadows disappear in the mist

-iv-

weary feet trace the path of meditation
beneath the weight of silence
they go in circles
seeking answers to unknown questions

-v-

My heart blooms pink on this October morn
awash with blush in the horizon
The sun rises -
even when the night seemed endless.



Here’s hoping that this piece meets the bar with Dverse’s Poets’ Cadralor poetry form prompt.

  1. A wonderful poem for October. Really like how you painted the scene of autumn and the feelings that may unfold. Sounds like you are staying hopeful and optimistic this season – like how you mentioned ‘the sun rises even when the night seems endless’. Hope you are doing well, Imelda. I missed reading your poetry and lovely to see you have been posting again 🙂

  2. Good to read you Imelda. Love how you set the autumn mood with the opening stanza. This is a season of deep reflections on life as well.
