Autumn Feathers and Leaves

Leaves scooped in a pile On this gray side of paling, Feathers and sunshine maples; In the fall of life. Past crinkled furrows, smiles deep... Blowing frosty weathered hair. ~ "paling" - picket fence/fence made of pales .. For Russel Sivey's contest : " Sedoka Me Any Subject" written by gautami phookan ..

    Your poem is very evocative. But what does "paling" mean? Peace & Blessings Matthew Anish

    Awww shucks, can't it mean crow's feet/ cleft in some sense.. poetic sense? you know, I'd thought to replace it but it does look good there debbie, wait there always tomorrow to think again :))

    You have sprinkled some wonderful images of your autumn like days, Gauti. Unfortunately, I don't agree with you..I think you are in the late SPRING OF YOUR LIFE!! ha ha. Your fun little girl like images of days down on the farm make me feel youthful..Your spirit is youthful..I know the body tells us otherwise...I never want to hit Autumn...just maybe ....maybe a late Indian Summer! lol..I was so thrilled to see your image in your first official blog..altho I know our hearts are connected, a face with the name is grand too! :) Gwendolen

    hahaha... I was trying to get into the mind of someone who experiences those years. But still, now I'm on the other side of forty.. and some changes are very conspicuous and dramatic I realized...
