Humble Autumn


In autumn, 
mums and leaves 
wear their special costumes,
and only the final crumbles of summer 
can be found. 
Drummers announcing winter’s storms 
are still far-off and feint, 
but snowstorms have heard their summons
and are making ready.
Pumpkins, too, are preparing themselves,
almost humming in happiness, 
and the trumpets of frost 
are perfecting their melodies.  
It’s no surprise
that worries and fears 
often grow numb and powerless 
during this season of
the dominion 
of humble but buoyant autumn.  


Here are some photos from this autumn season …

Delycia and her artistic – but very scary – jack-o’-lantern …

and some scenes from recent walks …
