The snow would not settle on you


I saw you, and that was it.
The leaves moved and
the autumn changed.
The wind broke its pattern.
How can it ?
You are just someone ordinary.
But the snow would not settle on you.
It was strange, really.
My blossoming continued,
but it was in red now.
I had become different.
Pulled up with the root.
You gave me no chance to regret leaving.
You stood there. Waiting for me.
To leave winter behind.

  1. Beautiful photo and words! Very inspiring! I love how it can be interpreted as positive with a hint of melancholy or coldness to it. And I love how you use seasons\weather\nature in a symbolic way. So lovely! ❀ You are so gifted!

    • Oh, thank you so so much!! I love poems that are open to interpretation, that’s the artistry of poetry, I think. We all see something different in the words. 😊😊. Yes, I’m very very fond of nature, so I often use nature symbolism in my poetry. πŸ’–πŸŒ³πŸΏπŸ’–

  2. Fasinating, that photo seems to inspire poetry, I was very moved by yours.

    I wrote one last year using the same photo:

    Change of Season

    Cold as hell
    I set fire to loneliness
    I watched its all consuming flames
    Singe leaves on trees
    Leaving red and orange hues

    • Oh, wow! That’s beautiful! I did source the photo after I wrote the poem, but I agree with you, it certainly does inspire the creative mind! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

      • Fasinating, I wrote the poem and looked for a photo to go with it and that was the one that spoke to me the most concerning the poem.

        I love your poetry, keep up the good work! πŸ’–
