Winter Leaves

Note: Bastet of Bastet’s Pixelventures part of Because We’re Poets gave us another picture prompt: “So my dears…let’s look at flowers or plants! So pull out your cell phones or if you’ve got something better you can certainly use it, and let’s take on this risky venture into the unknown world of plants and flowers!”


The loneliness of trees undressed
Deflect our gaze to our own breast
We yearn to enter
As birds perch, intent without flight
A time to breathe, reflect upon a sight
Of leaves of winter.
