Written as a series of #sixwordstory tweets and tweaked into a short poem.
Pale sun casts deep shadows long,
Wind in leaves sings winter’s song.
Roses fall with never a sound,
Petals scatter upon the frozen ground.
Stark branches sway, aflutter with birds,
Whispers the sedge its secret words.
When dawn breaks, chasing sombre night,
Robin sings the winter dark light.
