at their peak

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1800 – New Beginnings . . . first leaf falling

“Today I love to challenge you to create Japanese poetry themed “first leaf falling”, autumn is in my opinion one of the most beautiful seasons and it’s, according to classical sources of Japan, the best season to see the moon and praise her beauty. Autumn … gives me always the feeling of departure and letting go … Leaves are coloring and finally fall …”

light of the full moon
silverly beautiful … so fragile
leaves are falling

Here is my attempt:

leaves in bright sunshine
saturated in color
outlined shadows at night


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.
