Autumn leaves

Poetry

Another post from inky via allpoetry.com

The squirrels are a scurrying

amongst the fallen leaves

searching out the conkers

hiding in the trees eaves

Carpet, multi coloured

paints a walker a scene

an autumnal view, that carries a few

colours, of red, gold, brown, green

And as bird watcher goes a twitching,

the animals go have some lunch

As the watcher goes round, he cant help but make a sound

as the leaves underneath him go crunch

But lets give our thanks to the Autumn,

who’s colours are warm and so bright,

as Winter arrives, the frost and snow thrives

turning the leaves on th’floor white!

I sat watching by the window

as two quarrelling brothers

traded blows over a tree outside

both lay claim on this tall green beauty

and each tried their hardest to get it for themselves

but as day turned into night

the tree stayed rooted to its spot

and neither brother got what they wanted

opting to play with some fallen leaves instead

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

One of my first pastel drawings

I’d been sat in the front garden, of the terraced house i live in and decided to bring some colour to my drawing pad

The trees in the garden were coming into bloom , whilst the fuschias and minature roses were coming into their own.  They danced around like ballerinas in the slight breeze

I tried to get some detail in, my talent more observant of the leaves than the petals.

But in what seemed to be a short while, i’d frittered away two whole hours on the garden bench. ¬†Pausing on the hour to enjoy a Corned beef Sandwich and a cool lemonade.

Playing around with the Greens , Pinks and Reds.  With Blue making a cameo appearance.

Harmony

It starts with the wind gently rushing through the green leaves

feathered maestros awaken in nests and trees

no electronic devices needed here

as chirping chums share news around the bird bath

and as they fly into the morning blue

the song begins to take shape

a tale of a glorious blue sky moment

twittered by the chorus that’s come together

and are residing on the roof to perform

Perhaps its no mistake

In noting you’re an evergreen

Numbers of you gather on

Each side of the forest road, pushing through the

 

Grasses as you do,

Reaching high up into the sky of blue

Every squirrel in the neighbourhood covets your seeds, and

Each eager young kid, takes one your cones home

Noting – when your seed opens and closes

Walking through the forest on a summers morning

the sun peeking through the trees to say hello

new hairdo’s for all – their old leaves forming a carpet below

they make a wonderful crunch as you step through them

and waking up to the sound of the leaves ?

a family of squirrels up high in the trees

what’s for¬†breakfast ? say the kids

Hazel Nuts ? Yummy.
