"Their leaves lay dead and the wind scatters each here and there. Now, the trees are silent bones. Yet, there is a beauty in their stillness." Quote by _ Constance November, Autumn's finale where the trees are a mosaic of all seasons and natures landscapes is multi-hued with falling leaves taking each tree's precious jewel from her arms and in the drifting winds scattering them here and there until, all at once the trees are bones and sticks hushed, they spread their fragile branches to the sky moaning, creaking, weeping full of melancholy and memories perhaps, reflecting on the beauty they had to let go bare, their shapes revealed are they are whispering to each other . . . time to sleep in this garden of November until, its time to wake again . . . __________________________ November 07, 2022 Poetry/Free Verse/Enchanting November Trees Copyright Protected, ID 11-1499-642-07 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Premiere contest, November sponsor, Regina McIntosh, Judged 11/10/2022 Ninth Place Submitted to the Standard contest, A Freed Verse sponsor, Brian Strand, Judged 12/30/2022 First Place

Constance, such a lovely meditation on the bare November landscape... "reflecting on the beauty they had to let go". Such a touching statement to any and all who have had to bid adieu to a loved one or a dear pet. There is sadness in the beauty lost and beauty in the sadness embraced. Love the hope in the final line. Congrats for your two recent wins, and best wishes for a happy new year, my friend ~ John

Very pretty verse, Constance! I can just picture the trees without their leaves, “moaning, creaking, weeping”. Great imagery! Best wishes for the contest! :)
