This wee we're celebrating Autumn, with apologies to Lien who hasn't had enough Summer... But I can see the leaves turning and a chill in the air, so let us welcome Autumn, with lyrical offerings...
Flickering, orange-red, amidst the green and brown,
The earth burns brightest before the dark,
The flaming leaves heralding the arrival of the cold,
In a last flourish, a challenge to the inevitable passing into grey,
The earth burns with reds, russets, oranges-golds,
Before fading and falling, snuffed by Winter's advance.
