October 2015

Glorious woodland colours…

A flock of red leaves,
at the West Wind’s merest touch,
scatters silently.

*************************

Summer must be over, the deer are back…

Thundering of hooves,
light’ning flash of fleeing tails.
Silence settles back.

(23/10/15)

**************************

Extraordinarily calm weather, not a ripple of a breeze, not a drop of moisture…

Sky and sea look up
from perfectly still water.
Cars make wave noises.

(16/10/15)

***************************

Autumn colours are arriving, beautifully…

Ferns raise bright banners:
start of a new Golden Age.
Autumn leaves rejoice.

(09/10/15)

****************************

There’s a definite lengthening of shadows, a shortening of days…

Birds heading homewards.
Light ducks under low branches.
Shadows coalesce.
