October

She whispers
in my ear
with
bright breath
sweet
as death
telling me
the end is near

Is it any wonder
I fall under
her spell?



Over in the Imaginary Garden  Mama Zen remind us that words count, as she had us write 53 or fewer words personifying October.

  1. Give me fall - a day like today year round and I'll be happy. "I fall under
    her spell"

  16. October and November, March and April. My two favourite seasons, autumn and spring, death and rebirth. Thanks, that was a beautiful poem.

    Greetings from London.

    1. Yes, I like spring too...and winter for about the first half of it, and summer until half way through August, lol. Thank you so much for reading and commenting. I hope you're having a lovely autumn in London.
