Rising With The Snow
As October skies diminish their light,
Flower beds begin to pull their covers tight.
Bid farewell to Susan and Petunia hanging low-
As we greet Pansy and Rose still rising with the snow.

This is an early poem inspired by the later fall garden. I wrote it as I watched October fade with the autumn light, and the days turned grayer, and the daylight hours shorter. The girl’s names are also flowers that grow in my garden. It isn’t unusual to see roses and pansies blooming right up until the first substantial snow, seen sometimes in late October. Thankfully not this October!
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
I am also linking in with the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday, with Judith@Lavender Cottage who hosts Mosaic Monday, and with Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday) photo linkup party at image-in-ing.
If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs.
Special Note: The roses pictured here grow in my summer garden, and bloom again in fall. They make an amazing picture when the snow encases them. These photos were from a few years ago when we had an early October snow.
I leave you with a few additional words about the first snow in the garden. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
