My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

“impressions”

*

November rain falls from sagging clouds

crawling like smoke

across the cold landscape of late Autumn

obscuring mountain tops in a misty chill

permeating the bones of the earth and man

the valleys flowing with a silent fog

in remnants and shreds

that drag and catch in the knotty fingers

of a lone, gray tree

its bare gnarled hand clawing at the invisible sky

from a monotone field the dim dreary haze

creeps across a rain blackened fence row

and through the rickety slats of an ethereal red barn

to my window

the wet glass rendering the scene

like a sunless vision of Monet

I shiver behind the foggy frame

as I turn to search for a blanket

  1. This was so visual …

    knotty fingers
    of a lone, gray tree
    its bare gnarled hand clawing at the invisible sky

    Loved it!

    Happy Thanksgiving

  2. Turbo Ghost

    I like this! (I tried the “like” button but, it didn’t seem to work) As was mentioned, a very visual bit of prose. Good job!

  3. You’ve taken me right there … right out of the city to this place (real or imagined … but I assume real given where you live) and into the magic of a cold but peaceful place. I’m reaching for my blanket!
