This is a new meme I’m going to try to do every week hosted by me at The Sleepy BookNerd. Where I post an original piece of writing. Wanna join in? Just link up to this post, I’ll be really happy, if anyone wants to join in.
So the piece of writing I wrote for this week is entitled Autumn Winds and is a poem about walking through the park on an Autumn day.
The autumn leaves waltz aimlessly in the wind,
spiraling, descending, then hitting the ground with a silent thud.
The wind whips my my face, blowing my hair back with a powerful gust.
The sky is fading to a summery yellow, the clouds placed as if the sky were a painting.
My weathered boots sink in the mud, slowly as though the ground was swallowing me whole.
I watch the sun disappear behind the houses, a hazy glimmer outlining the rooftops.
I perch against a looming tree, until the sun lowers and the sky fades into a darkening blue,
the lampposts flash one, illuminating the paths of the park, a roadway to nature and freedom.
Behind me I hear whispers carried on he wind, they say the same thing over and over again,
I feel a chill and pass the noises off as blowing leaves in the wind.
As the lights flicker on in the houses, I make my way back.
I open the door, the aromas of dinner, a roast, waft up my nose,
and the heat blasts against my face, spreading throughout my whole body like a fire.
I feel a sense of relief, “I’m home!” I call.
I brush my feet on the mat that says “Welcome.”,
and for once I feel like I am.
Here is a drawing to go with it:
