November Dreams--By Olive Eloisa D. Guillermo--Philippines

November Dreams

Acrobatic leaves
fatigued, drop to earth below.
Calmly, they rest jam-pack-like.

Trees beheaded bold
while meteor-like streaks fall.
They hug the trunks with cold-fire.

Olive Eloisa D. Guillermo, 28 year-old from The Philippines, is a nurse by profession. Poetry writing is her new found hobby, since 2012. She is a member of Poetry Soup where she submits most of her poems. Her writing inspiration is driven by God, experiences and nature. She dreams of publishing a book someday.


  1. Olive, it is so nice to see this well written poem you have shared with us here on Whispers. I loved your description of autumn leaves; a perfectly unique description as well as the beheaded trees and the ice at their trunks. With poetry like you have written here I have no doubt you will write a great poetry book. Thank you for sharing your talent with us on Whispers.
    Love, Charlene

  8. Olive,
    As one who is completing a children's poetry chapbook, it is not that hard, a lot of companies are more than happy to find an illustrator for you and even pay you, if
    that's the route you are going for. If not, buy the Writer's market (if it's available where you live) and start researching companies. On-line companies can work with you too, if you've got the cash, there more than happy to help!
    Your new friend,
    David Fox
