Fallen

 

Everything
Is lying on the ground today

The fallen petals and blossoms
The leaves
Rain
Branches
And dead insects

The sky has fallen to the Earth
And it is low and grey and imposing

With it has come a humidity
And it saps my strength
And leaves my essence
Crumbling within the organic debris

Everything is lying on the ground before me today

The fallen petals
And blossoms
The leaves
Rain
Branches
And the dead insects

Life has fallen to the Earth.

Such sadness.. playing on a loop, rather like stillness after the crescendo of a storm when damage is assessed. B.

Melancholy, ennui, perfectly pitched. Nice work!
