Magpie Tales... A Cold Autumn Path

Photo by Mark Haley

Blustery day leading

Up a cold autumn path

Wearily I trudge  

Finding an open door

With welcoming warm hearts

It's autumn, leading us to time with family and friends. Inside out of the cold. This is lovely.

A lovely poem, with a nice ending.

What a great positive ending- just what the gloomy picture needed...

Fantastic ending ..... I prefer to meet the monsters and demons at the end, at least then i know what the buggers are up to.....but each to their own !

Lovely words, and a fine welcome to autumn-ness! I like your last photo, that itself could lead to another poem of sorts, in my eyes!

Sue said...

We all need a warm welcome, and autumn surely lends itself well to that!
