windblown bracts

the gaze of fall starlight

on high tide

what better lullaby

than wind on water?

 

For Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday Challenge:

November 7th prompt: synonyms of Autumn and leaves

Jane Dougherty’s a Month with Yeats: Day 7:

“These lines are from ‘To the Rose Upon the Rood of Time’ by W.B. Yeats.
‘…stars, grown old
In dancing silver-sandalled on the sea,
Sing in their high and lonely melody.’”
