Over the rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow,

Rainbow

September descends softly

With wreaths of mist

Mist

And a single leaf

Floats to the ground.

Single leaf

Shocking pink beauties

Bow dewy heads

Dewy pink

And flowers offer up

Petalled cups of love.

Softly spring

Spring dances in –

Two steps forward and one step back.

Frosty dawn

Frosted dawns

Give way to soft pink light.

Pink light

Blue skies are serenaded

By blur of wings and trees

Waiting to burst into bud.

Blur of wings

And winter leaves behind

A fragile reminder of its return.

Frosted times

Let me take you back to the end of October last year,

To a cold day of frosted eyelashes on leaves.

It was a stunning bright day

Perfect for a drive out to the horse ranch

Sporting its old Grand Central clock on the side of the barn.

Grand central

The brilliance of the sun

Turned the wires into art

Frosted wire

And behind the frosted thistles

I discovered a secret world of rainbow bubbles.

On the way home, I stopped to admire

The endurance of this ancient rune stone

(And to wonder if the Simpsons was based on the pattern on the stone…

Look at those eyes!)

Early autumn light

There is a special clarity in the light of early autumn.

It bathes roses in magical golden tones

And turns lavender into glorious purple works of art.

If you get up early enough, you can drink

The dew from shy violets

And enjoy the droplets on early morning roses.

My son loves the vibrancy of autumn leaves

And brings home some leafy sunshine every day after school

To put into a vase of water,

Crying every time the leaves curl up and die.

No better way to learn about the brevity and beauty of life, I suppose.
