a little death

I like the way that you made this slip seamlessly from beauty to death, Rachael. The structure here forces one to read slowly and with passion. Well written.
Thank you, Chris. Pleased the flow worked for you.
I like the final rhyme “earth/death”, because it’s also a visual rhyme… a little death as you say, not a real death… just a part of the cycle… the golden cycle of life! Beautiful – et vivent les Gingkos, arbres de merveilles – wonder trees :-)♥
Thank you, Frederic. I wanted to make ‘light’ of the death – the transcience being of greater importance…
This is the tree in a pot in my kitchen garden. It has three maples as friends, and together the colours are so beautiful right now. 🙂
Beautiful and a bit sad, as many of your poems describing the transience of nature are. Lovely words, Rachael.
Thank you, Miranda. So pleased you liked it, and I think you’re right about the melancholia 🙂
