Horseshoe Falls

Into the Image: August Poetry Prompt

Niagara Horseshoe Falls colorful at night 3

The Reaper is coming
making haste amid the
greening, the browning,
the oranging of leaves

like an eagle etching — with keen claws
jet charcoal branches
that skip, swing
among sapphire raining clouds

I pen poetry about love and loss, what I observe and experience — I write about hope. My writing has been described as resiliently defiant.
