Prompt 84: Descent

Thanks to Sue of Sunflower Roots for this week's prompt, descent. Here are her beautiful poem and photo.


angle of sun

creeps slowly towards

the horizon,

afternoons shorten,

shadows lengthen

cross lawns,

first one leaf

then another

flutter gently,

spiraling earthward,

evening chill

comes early,

as earth


its descent

to winter.
