Emerald Embers

Low sun,
long shadows stretch
menacing fingers across the lawn,
quenching the glorious emerald embers
of summer.

    Love the visual I got while reading this, Libby, especially “the glorious emerald embers of summer.”

    This reminds me of the long shadows of bare trees on snow by a winter’s full moon.
