It’s that time of year again when it starts to get cooler, after the baking summer sun. The days grow shorter and leaves on the trees are just starting to change colour.
I’ve written a poem inspired by the changing landscape called Autumn Chill.
🍂 Autumn Chill 🍂
Light picks out the gentle rippling on a lake
Clouds hang heavily in the sky above
Their grey shadows dance clumsily on the water
revealing a light mist in the distance
Splinters of brilliant light highlight treetops
Golden hues glinting their changing colours
The air feels cool and fresh
Still a brief hint of summer lingers
Subtle leaf tones of red, purple, orange and green
Jump towards me from a transforming bush
The weakening sunlight is fading now
Autumn splendour slowly unfolding
