A Trick of The Light - Saturday Centus wk 28

Week 28 of Saturday Centus the prompt is to use up to 100 words (not including the prompt) using the line "The early November sunshine cast golden rays..."

A Trick Of The Light

The early November sunshine cast golden rays

liquid yellow, pooling on the ruffled white sheets

white mountain tops of my memories, illuminated

I am caught in the moment, tangled in the threads

of another autumn, and ghosts of then burst forth

like maple leaves, red, orange, yellow and beautiful

I watch as the light shifts, and the spell, it is broken

the long gone days, retreating, as if blown by the wind

leaves are falling again, the unsought magic is dissolving

and I am here, and it is now, and the snow covered peaks

are once again, just sheets on the bed that I'm about to make

Oh, the concrete images, the colors! You painted a beautiful picture with words - "...liquid yellow, pooling on the ruffled white sheets..." The symbolism is strong "...caught in the moment, tangled in the threads..."

This is wonderful..........cj

I wish you could see the dreamy look on my face. I read this several times, and then out loud.

Absolutely wonderful.

My favorite line? I am caught in the moment, tangled in the threads
of another autumn.
