Autumn is a drunken, gluttonous, slattern

who takes a haphazard swipe

at the brittle, weathered leaves

and scatters them from her dirty apron

like crumbs before a tribe of Guinea hens.

 

Her broom licks the earth in a tipsy tiff

from horizon to horizon she sweeps

the fallen debris under the hearth rug

and satisfied with her household’s keep

lays herself down to troubled sleep.

  1. Whistles!! ❤️❤️ This is absolutely incredible writing, Debi 😀 I agree, the season does engage us in loads of cleaning and sweeping; especially love the lines “Her broom licks the earth in a tipsy tiff from horizon to horizon she sweeps the fallen debris under the hearth rug” Beautifully executed. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support ❤️❤️

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

    lays herself down to troubled sleep..” and so she does 🙂
