“Thus, today’s optional extra bit of inspiration for your 55-worder is the concept of SPACE. ”

 

Leaves have fallen from tree and bush.

Now, I see further than summer allowed.

The world is a bit bigger, emptier, plainly

revealing the squirrel’s drey in bare limbs.

A cradle the wind will rock on blustery nights,

then, knock at my rafters wanting in.

Huff and puff for I’ll be cozy in my den.

    That is a superbly worded line, Debi. How I wish I has once seen a squirrel’s drey.

    Love that ‘brick house’ ending, Debi. We have birds and rabbits, no squirrels.

    The poor squirrel. Blustery windy nights are very unkind to them. One can’t really help them but to remain indoors ourselves!

  9. I have always felt leaves of summer to lock me in… and yes from the inside the views are perfect.
