Autumn’s Scenery

by Colly


Autumn is here…

with a crispness in the air.

And your breath lingers there.

Leaves are turning..

many colours to be found.

Lingering on the ground.

Only to be picked up by

a brisk breeze.

Fires are burning…

Wafts of smoke plume, airborne.

Following maples bright laden bough.

Ice-rain collects on these now.

The earth softens, rests from toil.

Whiteness is seen…but not enough

to winter the scene.

Wetness drenches everything…

Autumn is here…
