untitled (Thursday Think Tank)

of the autumn breeze
the leaves grew tired-
their shadows rested
on the empty bench

This poem was written in response to the visual prompt at Thursday Think Tank #51 at Poets United.

  13. Mary, thanks. I saw the shadows of the leaves, but you're right - you can't see any leaves in the photo.
