Forgotten Winter

Weighted now with ancient mystery she stands among serenity in full bloom of twilight's sigh with abundant bouquets of wild sage and thyme that makes aging possibly worth the wait nights weighted with dead leaves and hidden wounds vanish in the wind while autumn disappears leaving only the springtime frozen in forgotten winters leaving dreams of a second childhood

    Vary nice Carrie ; autumn into winter my favorite Gothic season. I've thought autumn poems should be written on parchment paper that feels like leaf in your hand . Well done .-----Michael

    Something hurtful still exists, and to approach it becomes easier throughout life's seasons changing with time, only... Inside the garden that comforts her. I may be looking to far into? Good Luck with this winner!
