Poems

Decoding Autumn

To be the most favoured season
For anyone with a little artistry
Itching within their marrow:

It is the show time for trees
As they become
Most spotlighted
By blooming fully
Towards a bluer & higher sky

Even more fully than spring
Or summer flowers

Yes, autumn trees are most
Congenial to the soul of a painter
As they mark each
Fine hour in a different nuance
Of colour & shape, with each of
Their leaves battling
Fiercely & brilliantly
Against the rhythms of death
