Eastern Wind

Eastern Wind

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer
"

a winter day

"

Winter’s wheat with a hint of red gently yields to an eastern wind.


Brittle leaves earthen toned scatter easily across the barren ground.


Heather gray spreads through the sky

as heavy clouds blot out the light.


Tiny finch darts for cover

as a mighty shadow

  reveals, 

 a predator searching for his supper.

The language built up the imagery really nicely and I got chills while reading the last line. I like little poems like this that simply describe a moment so lucidly, and leave a vivid impression, and you've done so, so well!

A wonderful poem. The strong description made the world come alive. I did like the ending. A deadly predator can silence a active world. Thank you Cherrie for sharing the excellent poetry.

Stunning imagery right from the start. This was a joy to read. At first I felt relaxed as you described the scene and suddenly I tensed as I read the last line! This changed from peaceful to exciting really quickly. Well done.

thank you, Dianne I think that is how nature is a tight rope of discovery
I really, really enjoyed this. Sometimes we forget the poetic beauty of just describing something we see, with either our eyes or our mind. This was beautiful.
