Storm clouds race against the steely sky,
Highlighting the stark contrast of
Weary and worn leaves,
Dried and mature-coopery colors of age.
Stretching, straining to hold on
Before winter calls them to slumber,
Brown and tattered mere memories.

In late October and early November, I watch dark clouds fly across the sky contrasting against the almost leafless trees. It is an amazing sight that I never tire of. This year the autumn skies have lingered long into November.
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 pictures were taken in my garden this year at the end of October and beginning of November.
I leave you with a few additional words about Autumn leaves in their final slumber. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
