Missing the Sun, A Marigold’s Lament – Poem and FOTD

Missing the sun,
Seasons now change,
What have I done?
Seems rather strange...

Rays now are less,
Replaced by these leaves,
Feeling more stress,
Come back soon please...

Wondering now,
Can I make it much more,
I don't know how,
Chilled to the core...

Just one more glance,
As I'm fading away,
Crossed the expanse,
No more to say.

As I was thinking about the picture above being one of the last pictures of Marigolds I am likely to get this year, fallen leaves invading the scene, days growing shorter I was taken by thoughts of what this change might be like to the marigold were it able to ponder the end of the growing season.

The marigold chosen for Cee’s Flower of the Day, November 10, 2019.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a restful Sunday!
