Sunday 160 - Naked Fall


Ominous hues of black and gray 
rolled through the skies 
with grim ferocity 
sucking even the brightest 
of fall colors 
from the trees, 
leaving them to feel naked.
______________________________

If you want to play along with the Sunday 160. Here are the rules.

1. The Sunday 160 only uses EXACTLY 160 characters (including spaces).
2. Keep on schedule - post after 8:00 PM Pacific Time on Saturday.
3. Let me know you have posted via a comment on my site.
(Be sure to mention you have posted a 160. Provide a link if you can)
4. Visit at least one other Sunday 160 writer.

I love you pic, btw. A little fall color would definitely warm it up a bit.

For a second there, I thought I was going to do the break-through Scrabble thing, or is it Yatzee?

Where’s the missing angel?

Enchanted Oak said...

That IS a scary photo. Are you really looking at that? It would make me ask myself: Am I saved? Am I one of the chosen?

They're threatening that kind of weather here this week. I can't say I'm looking forward to it - but your description makes it sounds exciting.

I'm up here

We seem to be in the same climate, at least poetically. I'd like to try your Sunday 160 if I can get back here in time. Cheers.
