WOBP writing prompt – color = BROWN

From the writing prompt suggestion given by Sara Comte, Writing on banana peels http://writingonbananapeels.wordpress.com/2013/05/13/writing-prompt-stories-of-color/

Here is my poem about the color brown.

BROWN

Brown leaves crushed under my foot

Warm weather slowly fading

This is how I know summer is cascading

The woodland trees are going bare after flicking from red to brown

There’s coolness in the air and crunchiness to the ground

Oh soon it will be winter, where nothing shines like bronze

Oh how I love dear autumn the next one feels aeons

death everyday

Humans have it easy

When you sit back and think

Animals in the wild see death and do not blink

Every day they live their lives in the fear of the unknown

This is what they’re used to

This is how they’re grown

A little bird on the wing once isolated to a nest

Filled of dead brothers and sisters

Rotten to the flesh

It carries on its little life as if it doesn’t care

But that is how it survives, because it knows that life’s unfair

Gazelles on the African plain run for their lives each day

They grow to see their neighbors, friends, relatives picked away

Yet do they sit and mope all day? 

Do they have time to mourn?

Please remember what I’ve said above, and don’t be too forlorn

Human have it easy in comparison to them

Just take life as it comes, do not, yourself condemn

butterfly valley

A flitter of flutters they fly past me, in the evergreen meadows below the valley of home

Sharp beatings of their wings, sings to me from the summer breeze of butterflies’ tome

A wave of rainbows surrounds me, their colors they astound me, this is the place I love to roam

This is the place that I call home
