Something Brown

Something brown from a bright foil wrapper
   melts into velvet dark richness.
Something brown lies across my legs
   fleecy, thick and warm.
Something brown burns bright 
   hot amber dancing orange.
Something brown and grey and red
   hops on the patio rail
   dodging drops of rain on a dark day.

I wrote this poem from a prompt on the Writer’s Digest page.  It was a simple prompt — write about something <your choice>.  It’s cold and rainy today.  This is how it looks.

  1. Just read the last three posts…heartfelt, engaging, empathetic…Thank you for your visit my way.
    My garden, such as it is has to much shade for veggies. The blooming yellow of the forsythia greeted me this spring.
