Season’s change

ImageThe first sip

of fresh washed autumn air

brings mushrooms


through summer’s crust.

Eucalypts release and relax,

lounging dourly

between exotic’s

frenetic fractured


Spun bright and settling

by a gauze drape of breeze,

cool as a headmistress’ fingers.

Magpies hunt

and warble their joy

in the season’s discards.


One thought on “Season’s change

  1. Just lovely. “Fresh washed autumn air,” “mushrooms pup nosing” and “cool as a headmistress’ fingers” are just brilliant. Talk about capturing the essence of a thing in a few words. Just great.
