Posts tagged ‘Autumn’
A tough nut to crack
until it meets the jaws of
an autumn squirrel.
Gold like summer’s sun
soybean fields wait for harvest
and warm fall’s palette.
Walk into change
upon the path laid for you.
It will become yours.
When you are the trail
and another follows you,
you become the wind
beneath golden leaves
soaring past trees and sky to
the edge of heaven.
Wind combs the tree’s hair,
scattering tresses upon
the salon floor of fall.
Within branches the nesting birds do bed
Tiny white flowers bud into a robust red
You’re affectionately often called the firethorn
We cut and vase your festive foliage to adorn
Your dense thorny structure creates a wall
When red comes to call, I know it is Fall
Pyracantha, my barrier shrub of fire
You are the heart of Autumn’s desire
