October 2021

Autumn is definitely here at last, the colours magnificent…

Tired of all the green,
trees embrace Autumn colours
like it’s their last chance.



Leaves are turning…

Sumac’s vivd leaves
blaze even in the shadows;
Autumn’s burning bush.



Only the robin sings these mornings, busy days for them…

Dawn: commence singing;
patrol the territory;
eat; sleep; start again…



Some nocturnal deluges…

Into the clear space
hollowed out by the night’s rain,
floods a robin’s song.



A brief change in weather…

The year’s Menopause:
hot, then cold flushes.Repeat,
sudden, wild cloudbursts.
