Fall

Three Word Wednesday: The words for this weeks prompt are: Riot, Decay, Graceful

It rides upon the wind,
rioting for prominence.
Sometimes the change is subtle,
other times it's swift.

Whiffs of decay announce
multitudinous death.
Stark skeletal remains
evidence of carnage.

Yet such things happen
when the seasons change.
Yielding renewal and
graceful growth.

Those cycles of nature can be harsh and graceful at the same time.
Nicely done.

The second stanza is too good!

graceful was no longer in fashion

Each succeeding stanza built on the last, to a wonderful conclusion.

Nice write.

Nice use of words:)

KB - THanks kiddo. I enjoyed your 55'ers


Shadow - Thank you, the words for this weeks prompt really took quite a different trip for so many.


Just Someone - Thank you for your comments. You know I think of the destruction a fire brings, but with it, it also brings rebirth.. Ah the seasons they can be fickle

Baron's Life said...

I don't know what he was thinking Missy...Once a HOG always a HOG...but we must also remember...nothing is carved in stone...maybe you can write something on this..nothing is carved in stone

Amias said...

This was so when I was a child, but the summers are so long now it's hard to tell the seasons apart ...

.... this did bring back memories, and I especially loved the second verse.

pjd said...

The cycles of life and rebirth competently drawn out with subtlety. Well done.

Missy said...

Baron - Again thanks for the prompt. I really loved that and could have went many ways with it, but I explained why I did it this way on your blog

Amias - Thank you so much. I thought about how surreal it was that even when the leaves change and winter robs the lands of its fruitage, it looks rather skeletal and stark.

pjd - Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your comment very much.

April Lindfors said...

Wow, this was really beautiful. I really enjoyed it. I always look forward to fall...Florida summers can be suffocating.

A graceful stride across the parking lot

Beautiful! I especially loved how you ended this poem with the idea of growth and renewal.
