Octpowrimo Prompt 1

October1

Here is a dark one to start with. As darkness needs to quench light and so it shall be! Here is to “rising after the fall.”

This poem was in response to Nimue’s post
—*—*—

He consulted the skies
In brazen woods
Then
With measured strokes
He axed his feelings
As the tree fell
She smiled
With tender dreams
Of building a place
Called Home.

    I really liked the twist at the end when we find that he’s felling a tree to build a home. Very nice.

    As the tree fell :’(
    am sad
    but I guess thats nature. We build our dreams when someone else’s fall, sometimes.
