spread thin on the horizon
the sun’s rising later each day
maroon leaves and falling horse chestnuts
betray the arrival of
an early August autumn
we were too cloud-drenched to notice
too caught up in our own microclimates to care
but I welcome the new season
and the spectrum of flickering flames and hot embers
because I’ve always loved
dancing in the fire.
Thanks for taking the time to read my poem, originally wrote as part of #TopTweetTuesday on twitter, this is a farewell to Summer and a warm welcome to Autumn. Please feel free to leave a comment if you liked it or have any constructive critique.
