Autumn’s Song

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Character’s deepened

harvest hues etched

upon lingering leaves

scarlet edged

~

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

~

Cold coal nights

with fracturing frosts

starved of sunlight

yet gold embossed

~

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

~

Beauty’s emboldened

though veiled all along

foliage sways dance like

to late autumn’s song

~

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

~

A season’s emerging

when all dross is done

bare branches as brides

under white winter’s Sun.

No, we have not had snow yet this year…

this is our home on Christmas Day last December.

Our garden is swiftly loosing leaves.

I hope you are finding autumnal beauty

in your neighborhood.
