Winter’s Almost Here

Winter's Almost Here

Winter’s Almost Here

Winter’s Almost Here

.

Striptease trees whose leaves

Fall on semi naked ground

Auburn has darkened to shades of brown

While yellows and reds have all but gone

The long days of summer topped and tailed

Tho’ what is left is still warm as toast

Where the wind cannot reach us

Straining to grasp us as we linger

In our shelter under the wilting sun.

Shades

.

Shades of green with blue and gold
Block out more than half the sky ~
Magnificent trees, some young, some old,
With leaves that whisper in the breeze.

They sway, they bounce, they flounce,
Coquettish moods become apparent,
But then again they can be fierce
And whip themselves into a fury.

Sheltering birds take fright, take flight
Away from these bad tempered giants
Whose harbour was no longer offered,
Whose comfort was no longer proffered.

However, with the passing of the storm
I looked up at the leaves of varied hue,
At the sky of palest blue, and was
Surprised
To find
A passing bird spit in my eye!

The Powers of Darkness

 . 

The powers of darkness hold no sway,

Try as they may.

I walk in the Light and sin has no place,

Can’t show its face,

It’s forever erased.

 .

I have no fear because You are here.

You walk with me, keep me company,

And shield me from the storm.

There is no harm can touch me now.

I’m out of reach of the devil’s hold

And, truth be told, forever safe

And sheltered from the cold.
