Sunday Writing Challenge

This month’s writing challenge features Cheryl Caesar and John Grey


Autumn Affair – John Grey

Wind blows from the north,
trees shed their turning leaves.
Grey clouds almost brush the tops
of oaks and elms.

Green and blue no longer
primary colours, night drains
day from both ends.

Raindrops establish a pattern,
no downpour, merely drizzle,
yet, I could live this season
year round, not cruel like winter
but a poet’s playground
within easy reach of my pen.


Marriage – Cheryl Caesar


Trees talk silently:

adjusting to branches, roots;

sharing water, sun.

There’s no way to know the shape

of a single tree

This poem was featured in

Poetry Leaves, an anthology published

by the Waterford Township Public Library.
