3WW: Gloom, Kneel, Transparent

In Spite of the Gloom

Oak leaves
as big as hands
shine as if they’d
been painted
with polyurethane,

Fog, transparent
enough to see through,
settles like kneeling
parishioners in the pews
of pine trees.

I sit
inside the yellow sun
of our camper
typing letters
into words,

linking words
into sentences,
then watch as they
braid themselves
into this poem.

Dude! This is awesome! I love it! My favorite this week (so far at least, I have about 12 more tabs open on my browser!)

I love the description and the way it takes us from out in the woods to our very own moment of reading...

Happy 3WW!

As I was reading, I was picturing my wife crocheting. Creating from something simple.

You created from something simple and it was equally beautiful. Thank you for sharing your vision.
