OctPoWriMo 4 - Give Way to Gold

Today's prompt is Between the Clouds and the Water, and I was also inspired by one of my favourite poems: Robert Frost's Nothing Gold Can Stay.

Give Way to Gold

There is a turbulence of gold
Rioting along the fold
Where sea meets sky in dazzling power
Like a brilliant, fleeting flower:
Morn and eve, in colours brief;
And green gives way to gold in leaf:
Exquisite death upon display;
So glorious it cannot stay.


  1. Wonderful connection to one of my favorite poems/poets.

  2. Beautiful. Those last two lines are especially lovely.
