Cut loose:

Showers of beech leaves,   Paving the dark streets with gold – Freed by the north wind.     Advertisements

Late blossoming:

On a leafless bush, Vibrant, pink roses still grow- Where there should be hips.

Jewels:

Crab-apple necklace, Hangs on an old wooden door – Shining red and gold.

Two kinds of beauty:

Two silver birch trees, One clothed in fine golden leaves, The other quite bare.

Looking up:

In the grey twilight, Trees clothed in spots of white light – Lift the shoppers’ gaze.

Undercurrents:

In copper beech woods, Dry leaves rattle in the breeze –   Though it seems quite still.

Absence:

Silent lavender, Crane fly legs adorn old webs – the perfume faded

Welcoming:

Flocks of honking geese, Flying into the sunset – Enticing strangers.

Resistance:

Three apples remain, Still hanging from the branches – Hundreds on the ground.

Guidance:

Against a grey sky, Past brightly lit offices – Five white swans fly by.
