The Old Shade Tree

Ancient limbs outstretched
Gnarled fingers, October confetti
entwined gray locks streaming
Damp wind swaying old arms
Obscure wildcat echoes her pain
with hair raising primal screaming
Soon her cloak of Autumn colors gone
stripped bare, naked to the world
Spring fashion in dormant dreaming

An interesting way to describe a tree during the fall season. I see this is your first submission in a long while. Welcome back.

Sometimes we get so involved in work , that we do not take the time to enjoy life and the important things. I've really missed Poetry Soup, it's good to be back, thank you Robert.
