“the night has fallen”

Written for:  Carpe Diem Special (3rd guest) – Herman Van Rompuy’s “The night has fallen.”

the night has fallen
the bare branches can be seen
even more lonely

on a bare branch
a crow has stopped
autumn dusk

the last sunrays
painting shadows on the white wall
abandoned farm

Here is my attempt:

In October’s chill
the sun pales earlier
a day whirls by


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
