Autumn glow

After reading Lisa Hassan Scott’s various pieces in response to write alm’s November writing prompts I took a look at the various prompts and one in particular caught my eye. It was ‘Autumn glow’. I already had the picture painted, so all I needed was the words. I’m actually writing more on this subject – autumn beauty – at the moment but wanted to take part in this sharing of creativity as it looks like good fun.

Thank you, Amanda at Habit of Being, for the write alm prompts.

And this is for all the poet/painters out there 😉

Autumn Haiku

Yellow ochre tinged

with alizarin crimson;

autumn beauty reigns.

    1. Thanks Amanda for stopping by and taking the time to read my contribution. Alizarin is a great word! It is the name of a pigment of red used in watercolour painting, and very vibrant. I used the alizarin red and yellow ochre for the majority of the leaves in the image. Best wishes x

    1. Many thanks Patsy for stopping by and taking the time to leave a kind comment. One of my favourite aspects of creating is trying to fit images and words together. For this, the painting came first and then the words. Sometimes it goes the other way round, but however it occurs it’s simply lovely to make it happen 🙂 And yes, oh the various shades of red! So many pigments… all simply wonderful.

        1. Thank you Patsy for your encouragement, it means a lot to me.

          Perhaps you should dig out some of that poetry and have a read? Sure it’ll bring back some memories… 😉 Writing your autobiography is a good idea. Many authors talk about their first novels being quite autobiographical in tone, so this way you can release those important reflections and personal stories and then if you want to continue to write about other things you can do so under the impetus of new inspiration… Just a thought. Thanks for stopping by again 🙂

          1. You’re welcome, Marija. I have toyed with the idea of fictionalizing parts of my life for short stories. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. 🙂 I have no idea where my poetry is at the moment.
