I won second place in the contest!
This is my entry into #Lit-Visual-Alliance
's autumn contest here: [link]
It was inspired by *Hersoftestsoul
's poem here: [link]
This stanza in particular
I am as autumn,
dropped barefoot into some fleeting role,
self-destructing in the sterile cold
while passersby note only
their ephemeral beauty.
Personally, it's hard for me to find free verse I can enjoy since I prefer older styles of writing and fixed forms, but this I dunno, something about the flow and the subject matter really touched me. Plus it inspired this image. I sketched it awhile ago, but then I realized the deadline was December 1st and thought, "Oh, dang, I need to finish this!"
I think it's rather self explanatory considering the stanza, but if you have any questions feel free to ask.
I have four days of practically no school, so I should be cranking these contest entries out.
More to come!
