Layers – The Daily Prompt!

Nature’s Wand


A flurry of snow descended 

Upon the trees and roof tops

Falling like flakes of broken glasses

I saw the trees naked and bare

Quivering and shivering

They swayed left and right

Perhaps telling the autumnal Spirits

That they have been robbed of their pride

The leaves!



The leaves

The beauty of Fall

Nature’s masterpiece

Unique shades of colourful colours

That entice and bewitch the eyes

In pride they pose for the paparazzi

Snapshots taken in smiles by mortals

In admiration of the dying beauties

They lay still on the grounds

Layers upon layers


Even in death


The leaves

Are all gone

And here I stand

Alone and bare

The tree seem to tell nature

Patience, worry not, nature replied

Growth is constant with breath

Hope lives in life

Hope is life

The end tarry yet in pace



I shall lift my eyes unto providence

And yearn for growth in naked places

I must brave these odds too like the tree

To survive the bristles I thread upon

For in life

I must strive and thrive

Hope lives

Yes! It lives


In response to the Daily Prompt – Layers.

Peace and Love!
