this old house Thursday: on north street

i went out yesterday
in the late afternoon.
the wind made a blizzard of maple-leaf snowflakes,
the rain nibbled the air with its little sleet teeth.

I clutched my grey cloak around me as I read your warning, pausing just long enough to admire the concordance of burnt orange ...

With a verse like that, the photo is almost redundant — the imagery is so strong! I love it. And your gorgeous autumn photo too.

Alright, that's enough fooling around on CDP!

You need to get busy and put together a book of your photos with your poetic interpretations!

Now!

Do not wait any longer, for the world awaits your creative genius!

Sharon Creech said...

Yes, I agree w/Jacob.

Sunny said...

This would make a lovely painting, the blanket of leaves really lets us know that Fall is here.

I agree with Jacob! Your photos are beautiful, and your verse gives them depth and light. Find a publisher!

A beautiful house surrounded by leaves, green or various shades of brown. Nice words, as always.
