I write what I feel…

Autumn Falls

Autumn Falls

~~~

A tentative breeze

Wafts through the trees

And fall-coloured leaves

Of inconceivable hues

Drift down to the ground.

With barely a sound

They carpet the floor

Leaving us speechless,

Astounded in awe,

By beauty sacrificed

As before.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  2. Yes indeed, Carl. I took a wonderful picture of leaves lying on the grass, but I can’t use it as I am really pushed for gigs and think I am going to run out before the month end! Sorry…

  9. Yes, I also wondered – weird… Is it only some leaves that get that rich final flush of colour as they dry out, I wonder. I have only noticed it with my Japanese maple.
