WPC: Autumn Flame

Autumn Candle

the flame sways

in meditative radiance


remembering days filled with laughter amidst

autumnal golds and browns


breathing air thick with scents of

damp earth and ripe berries and rotting plants

and sugarbeet


a small hand held

within age-gnarled fingers

frog wellies stomping through

fallen leaves


 days now circled beneath the wheel

gone but not forgotten


as the flame sways

Autumn candle

This post is for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is Rounded.

I’ve actually had these pictures on my computer for a while now. I was just wondering what to do with them when I spotted this week’s WPC. I thought they’d fit the theme perfectly.

    • It’s one of those smells that’s hard to forget. Visitors to Newark generally hate it, but if you live there for any amount of time, you quickly learn to love it – or you move away!
      I’m glad you enjoyed the post, Derrick. 🙂
