An inexorable fall;
Crimson clad dancing breaks, leaving skeletal remains;
Colour hewed brittle by the shadow season's beguiling.
As the title suggests, this micropoem was written for the Three Line Thursday challenge - newly launched - which asks you to produce a three line response to a photo prompt (see here for the photo which inspired the poem above and to check out all of the other responses).
My effort received an Honourable Mention for the week and was deemed to use "excellent imagery" to quote the judge's response. Definitely not expected, so a nice surprise!
