Subtly Brown, A Poem and FOTD

No flare for me,
Just a subtle retreat,
Into the worlds of brown…

Don’t need to be,
A color so sweet,
No need to be like a clown…

Yet here you see,
Still look pretty neat,
So smile, don’t give me a frown…

And quietly,
I will feel complete,
Accepting this small renown.


This leaf type simply leaves brown once the chlorophyll has left. Still has a bit of texture and serves the same role, hailing of the coming winter.

For Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge, November 7, 2019 (also includes fall leaves and berries).

Thank you for reading and have a great day!
