Resting in the corner of the back yard

on granite and limestone

conifers and other evergreens

keep their spot looking tidy

Growing at a pace

a number will have to wait till their

rosy flowers appear with the warm weather

deciduous plants cold in the cold of winter

except when they’ve been clipped for

new table decorations at Christmas

Through the Garden Gate II

#Promptuarium

wondering over terracotta tiles

passing scents of geraniums and delphinums

trees of deciduous and conifer lining the way

till you reach the wooden door

not as you think – the end of the walk

merely the beginning – as a path twists and turns

passing through woodland and flowery borders

sounds of birdsong and wildlife round every corner

Lightness

#Octpowrimo #Lightness

Salford, 29th October 2019

As summer draws to a close

and green leaves turn to red

the leaves of the less evergreen

aided by wind rain and streams

float off in a dream, light as a feather

to their final resting spot

where they leave a mark of colour

on the paths around them

Falling leaves 🍁

Temporary

Three fallen leaves, recovered from the local park - and used in Artwork!
Two leaves, lost by the trees in Autumn, and used in an arty sense! Photo: BFK

Autumn is a little bit odd for a deciduous tree

you see whilst the evergreens are keeping their leaves

the deciduous trees are getting ready to lose theirs

and slowly their leaves turn from green

to yellow, to red and then brown

and as they do, they drift in the air

before landing on the ground
