 PAD Challenge day 12:for today’s prompt, pick a month (any month), make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

Stark and dark, its still-life poses
Like a thorn bush stripped of roses
Like a painting, bitter-sweet
Summer trampled ‘neath time’s feet
Lithesome youth from green tree shaken
Timeless truth, never mistaken
Nature, stripped down to its bones
Clings to tempered monotones
Sings a lonesome lullaby
In dead leaves cartwheeling by
