Announcing the arrival of autumn

under and around each branch of the trees

the keeper of the trees, mother earth has been busy

undertaking her role of changing the colours

making colourful patterns for people to look at

note, the noise that they make – mother earth has done that too!

Ode to the trees

Nature, Poetry

#Octpowrimo #Huggingatree

They line the road, from bottom to top

watching the people and vehicles pass by

doing their work without a word

the birds rest on their branches as they’ll flop

to trees with lots of leaves they’ll fly

the shade cast on the greens of the grass around

enjoying the cool from the suns rays unheard

out of the sun – on the shadiest ground

Waiting for the flowers

Poetry

Salford, 9th March 2019

A patch of earth on some barren land

Was turned over, fed and watered

Earth dug up in places on

Seeds or bulbs planted

Over the next few months, the process continued – and

Moments passed – until the arrival of a green leaf popping out of the ground

Expect rainbows of colour over the next few weeks.

A Japanese Maple in Salford

Nature, Poetry

Salford, 2nd March 2019

The Japanese maple – taken last year

Winter wasn’t kind to our friend round the back

Who was anchored to the rocks by its roots

The evergreens kept a watchful eye

As it sat there dormant in the wind rain and snow

Till one day last week – a clarion call

from our feathered chums returning from their homes in the south

“Spring’s arriving, the sun’s getting warmer”

and our little plant from the far east

began to wake up – and grow its buds

The birds they all cheered – and the wildlife revered

For as they did cheep – out of slumber the maple creeped

Autumn Leaves on a Bench on Salford Quays

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!
