Autumn mirrors in the river

Burnished colours, rich and bold

Jewelled leaves clone their treasure

Yellow, crimson, red and gold

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

  1. I don’t know whether Time permits this breather to trees for standing the Sun so long, or the rivers which were flowing like hell till then, slow down to make time to watch the luxuriant ambiance or even Nature itself wants this coloured tan on its leafy skin, but Autumn is the best time to replenish the famished store of one’s Nature’s images for another year.
    Thank you Denise for the fare and Photo (congrats to Kew ©Cherryl Stone).

    • I have been considering why, when Autumn is a slow dying for Winter, why is it that trees have this wonderful show of colour as if imitating their prime! Another synchronicity between my thinking and yours, Sunamu…?

  2. Succinct, expressive poem, and spectacular pic, Denise. It’s all like this here at the moment.
    My Rowan trees are now bare but for a few berries, which the birds revisit every day.
    Thank you.

    • Thank you, John. Living on the east coast in KZN (sub tropical climate) we didn’t have the trees changing colour. But as I moved further and further inland, so I came to appreciate the beautiful colours of autumn.

  14. Photos of water mirrors are great but I have always admired the different styles and ways painters portray such scenes with their brushes. I’ve tried but always looks like colorful mud.

  15. I love Kew Gardens. My wife and I visited when we lived in the south of England. There was one particular unforgettable day, like a pearl on the rosary of reverie …

    “Thanks for the memory.”

  17. Lovely words and picture. It certainly does give food for thought the way that season gives such a blaze of splendour.

    The Americans are impoverished by having their one-syllable substitute for the word – not nearly as poetic! A great deal easier to rhyme, though! 🙂
