October

Another month clocks up and the year seems be rushing along ever faster. Cooler days and misty mornings with trees only just beginning to turn from green to gold. Fruits still cling to trees and hedgerows. Prompted me into poetry.

Even those hanging on for dear life

to the lichen locked branches

now seem tired and ready to drop

into the dense, dewed grass of Autumn.

Rotted red, russet and green

cluster in charnelled heaps,

ripe for the cycle of another year.
