BrewNSpew Cafe – November 4, 2019

breathless mist curling

quiet noise stills the forest

a November day

And the dead leaves lie huddled and still,
No longer blown hither and thither;
The last lone aster is gone;
The flowers of the witch-hazel wither …

–Robert Frost (1874-1963)

Presenting the week’s prompt – You may use the word(s), phrase and/or image to interpret the prompt.

Because of my blog having some youthful readers, please and thank you for not submitting anything you wouldn’t want a ten year old to peruse or see.

Weekly prompt – enchant/enchanted/enchanting – placed under or as if under a magic spell; having or seeming to have a magical quality; made to feel delightfully pleased or charmed.

tumbling leaves in

gilded raiment embrace

the rhythmic plip plops

of softly falling rain.

their final destination

a silken carpet neath

trees stark and bare.

a pale moon slumbers

as darkness comes early

and the dawn lingers.

though November wears

a grayer scarf, the season

is enchanting opening doors

for caring and giving.
