AUTUMN’S GHOST

13 Oct

autumn photo: Autumn Autumn.jpgHe felt a murmur in the breeze,
a rattle in the eves,
a moment’s sigh, a moment’s ease,
a stirring in the leaves…

the summer lurched and slipped away,
cold winter crooked his hand,
a mist lay softly on the day,
stretched over sea and land…

he smiled and nodded there and then,
his task was almost done,
one final time he took his pen,
and scribbled out the sun….
