Life’s Pace

A sharp cold wind hits me in the face

An array of orange, gold, red, brown swirl around me

I hear the clickety clack of the railway track in the distance

Today life has a fast pace

A squirrel runs circles around the big oak tree

A crow cries out loud as it chases it away

The children rush home in their hats and coats to avoid the bitter wind

Life has a fast pace today

I watch in wonder as the grey skies gradually clear for golden shards of light

Then the clouds close again

A dog snuffling with its nose in leaves

Will life slow down again?

A warm rush of air as I reach my home, welcomes me to my hearth

I turn the taps in the bathroom on, a lovely soothing bath

A hot chocolate warms my hands by the fire

I have found the object of my desire

Life is slow here in this place

Life has all sorts of pace

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
