All the leaves have fled

Unforgiving bleakness –

a frigid wind that lives to torment.

All the leaves have fled,

leaving only naked trees to stand against the grayness.

Winter’s harsh gloom stubbornly remains;

and the distant sun refrains from sharing its warmth.

The cruelest season is upon us.


One response to “All the leaves have fled

  1. I really appreciate how you took one general opinion and expanded upon it, descried it, justified that opinion, and proved it to be a logical claim in your first six lines using simple, honest, and blunt language that reflects the message you are conveying.
    Very well done.
