I expressed my frustration in the post, Wrestling Myself Back to Writing that I had not been keeping up with my writing goals. Fellow blogger, Helen C, told me about the Friday Writing Essential challenge.
So here is my attempt at this new writing challenge.
The challenge is to look at the picture and tell a story….
Another season blows through my leaves.
Another day passes, another leaf falls away.
The bitterness of winter is coming, my branches will stand bare.
My heart is stilled as I stand dormant.
The winter will seem endless, but life will return again.
Buds will begin to shoot forth.
Leaves will stretch toward the sun, seeking its nourishment, soaking its warmth.
But for now I am a fleeting burst of orange and red.
A final flame of glory, before the leaves fall away.
