Autumn is leave-ing

November is a grey month, so you have to look hard for colour.

I found it here

In a red leaf with rain in the background.

Rain copy

A flash of gold

Reminds me that we have to hang on

And have hope at this time of year.

Lone leaf

In the right light,

Even an ageing leaf

Can look like a stained glass window.

Hanging on copy

“Don’t leaf me!” Ruby seems to be saying,

As we wave farewell to autumn.

Don't leaf me

To turn over a new leaf, please visit: Our World.
