Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

Lovely Droppings

Now that my petals

Are starting to fall,

I fear

If you would still think

Of my colors

When I am gone.

Would you still recall

My sun-kissed hue

If winter

Would cover me

With its freezing blankets

Of snow?

Would you hold me

In my sleep

And keep

My warm thoughts

In your memory?

At spring time,

Would you wait

For my re-birth

To start life anew?

To welcome you.

We’ll bathe

In love

Under the sun.

To grow

Bunch of buds

Of cherished moments.

But soon,

The summer sun

Would be ending.

Before it sets,

Let me leave you

With lovely droppings.

May my colors

Would sustain us

‘Til next spring.

‘Til I see you again.

  2. Why is it that the coming winter sets us into moods of lost beauty and dread of the unknowing weathers to come. I wish I could look at winter differently at times…maybe this year, but the petals are a beautiful reminder, great shots.

    Be well,

  3. Following on from Sharon’s comment ~ Why is it that Spring always fills us with hope, even if the first day of Spring is drowning in rain! Somehow we don’t mind! We think of brighter days ahead! And yet, if this same day began Winter, we would slip into that darkness Sharon mentions. We humans are definitely seasonal beasts of habit! If only we could break the chain!

  4. Lovely Droppings indeed! Magnificient photos and evocative, descriptive words to accompany. Wonderful, as usual Jeques. I love autumn so this was a very pleasant read this a.m. as I drink my morning cup of coffee. Thank you. Hugs, G

    it’s a nostalgia no other where the winter idyll takes its full force to a lonely heart. i will bask in that afterglow of your poem. such a lovely dropping indeed.
