Embrace the Beauty ~ quadrille

Embrace the Beauty

Within the beauty of your golden crown
lies no concern for loss or thoughts
laid bare by harsh truths. Though winter
will surely come, hope never leaves us.
Spring will follow, again and again,
until we embrace the beauty
of our own bare branches.

This poem is my response to Quadrille #141: Heady is the Poem That Wears the Crown, the prompt from De Jackson at dVerse ~ Poets Pub, which is to use a form of the word crown in a 44-word poem (excluding title), with no required meter or rhyme.

  1. Beautifully worded, with Nature showing her autumn glory colors to “demonstrate” that there is beauty in all seasons (of years, of each life) – intriguing to think of aging as embracing ever-barer branches! That’s a hint I’ll take and repeat to myself – thanks!
