Ruby's Fall

sad...the coming down, the letting go
the fall to damp chill soil
full are the woodlands now with barren boughs
frosted brittle are the gathered shards.

sad..dreary, crying out for bittersweet
to twine amongst the nudity of brazen bark
down, down, the fall of ruby holly
in crenulated grace its greenery shines
the letting go of sadness to replace.

    Debbie, I really like the optimistic message at the end of this wonderful verse. Thanks for liking my poem "DIWALI.." and the placement too.

    Today I looked at a tree I picked some pears from. No leaves and the once hidden birds nest were now revieled. This poem reminded me of this. I liked it.

    I am glad Debbie, that my ineptitudes within this frame work, of artistic endeavors, has given you “ it is a joy for me to give.. help.” A good feeling. I can empathize with those feelings my Dear, for I once knew them intimately ( as a single parent of two girls and as an English tutor for one of the subjects of my stuff. I do thank you Debbie, for the offer of attempting to teach an old dog some new tricks and would love to take you up on your offer . “ just for learning and for mutual fun] it would be my pleasure. ” As I am sure it would be more so for me I would think ?, and so might better facilitate that connection ? Hope you do not mine my use of, do like . Light & Love
