I, Autumn :Contest Entry: by Missvirginia I, Autumn :Contest Entry: by Missvirginia
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
the colours,
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!" :D 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. :D More to come!

Thank you! I tried to make her hair look kind of like branches. Leaves didn't look right after that, so thats why I thought to add her...light energy? I think that's what those are. :giggle: She's bringing fall with her with those little guys I suppose.
