photo of a tree shedding its leaves in autumn

All over the place—
walking ball of nervous wreck,
autumn afternoon.


photo of the morning sun shining through autumn trees that have lost most of their leaves

Filters through your limbs:
kiss of love; ray of sunshine—
early winter trees.


photo of trees on a lush green lawn, the trees' leaves gradually turning red and falling on the green lawn

Deep maroon on green
as first mangoes of summer,
Adelaide autumn.

Earth day

a bike path with autumn leaves scattered on either side

Scattered across earth—
fifty shades of autumn leaves,
and micro plastics.


a lush green lawn with a tree and its yellow leaves strewn fallen and strewn across the lawn

Cast away unloved
a child’s toy loses its sheen—
autumn leaves let go.
