Reflections and Sillhoettes

The following poem was prompted by both the photo prompt #37 of Willow at her Magpie Tales and by the Sunday Scribblings prompt #237 Harvest...   I hope you enjoy my interpretation of these.  To read others click on the links.


Soaking and sloshing, the essence of a new day.
As white and crisp as a child's innocence.
Forming reflections of the latest of seasons.

Magpie Tales #37

The rain rinses the branches bare of its leaves.
Harvested, the stark nakedness in silhouettes.
Settling delicately into the winter bed.

Dear Reflections: These two poems are very Masterful Haiku. In "Reflections" the cheerful image of eternal youth "Soaking and sloshing". And in "Silhouhette" The stark Imagery of the tree as a life drawing subject;
"the nakedness in silhouettes". Refreshing style!

That is a really lovely take on the changing of the season. Living in the Ozarks, I see a lot of stark nakedness come mid to late November. You have a beautiful way with words.
