Wordle #177: My Free Verse



Leaves blowing from the trees, 
meandering down the street.
Summer’s ending…on the edge of autumn.
But the trees are not sending out their usual signal
of leaves brilliant in orange, gold and red 
which normally illuminate my days, 
weeks before they become heavy with the dread 
of winter’s cold boring into my aching bones.

Dismal is the weather, 
the wind’s power being thrust at me
like bullets from a pistol, 
causing me to lock my door…
fearful of what will follow.

But as I gaze out the window,
what is that I spot, a lonely plant?
Could it be the last rose of summer,
dressed in its grandeur 
like Cinderella for the ball?

Your free verse is beautiful. I love autumn and am so waiting for it. This week will be hot and then they say it may start cooling down, hopefully so. I haven't used Wordle in such a long time. I remember when they first started I was over there just about every day making words to post on my blog. It was fun. Have a great rest of the week Norma. take care.

thank you, Gloria, for your kind words. I don't do Wordle often enough.
