Summer's End


This weekend we're asking for exactly 33 of your own words plus the following three words:

  • charge
  • century
  • lost
So 33 of yours plus 3 of ours means that everyone will have a 36 word response this time around.


In this copse of trees
We are a century lost
The trees whisper our secrets
While we wait out the sun
The charge of silence as we leave
The days grow colder
And so do we


I think the trifextra is easier to do with poetry, because you don't have to say everything.  Also, someday I might write something happy and then the world will implode.

  2. I like the line "the trees whisper our secrets". I imagine they have gathered many over the centuries!

  4. I'm glad :) When I try and write happy it always comes off played. Sadness is much easier to write!

  7. "in this corpse of trees" immediately provides the setting, but there's great beauty to the lines that make the oncoming coldness part of nature's seasonal beauty among lives, rather than oncoming fearfulness. just lovely.

  8. There is something mysterious about a copse of trees. A secret gathering...for what purpose? I loved this!
