trees shedding tippets
crackling spread underfoot
adorn the ground

trees shedding tippets
turning in
season’s long sleep

crackling spread underfoot
awaits winter’s white blanket
foliaged berth

adorn the ground
making way for winter,
different shades of brown

  1. I don’t know what a tippet is but you make sound like something I need to investigate! I love the word’s sound and how you wove it through your poems. I also love that your site is snowing. It’s a great touch.
