Autumn Glory

In the stillness of my garden

I bask in September sunshine,

white linen on the line

billows in the breeze.

Glitters of sky sparkle

through the maple,

my summer garden

gone to seed,

colours gently fading.

Tart Bramley bow, heavy,

ripe for the picking.

The cat leaps

clasping the clear air

a butterfly escapes…

she purrs back into the shade

resting on outstretched paws.

Her molting fur carries

like seeds on the wind,

catches on thorny roses

sprinting the garden wall.

Sunlight circles my cup of tea

and there are blue skies and butterflies

dripping with Autumn light.
