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. 🙂
