Autumn Thoughts 5

Wednesday, 18 November 2015 16:16:39


the aspen waves goodbye
to multi-coloured leaves
which make a mosaic on the ground
yellow red and brown
between lawn and compost bins

and a single robin enquires 
what I’m doing there
if I can’t turn over earth, just go away! 

I'm not sure what to do with the last 2 lines. I like the idea of the robin as it introduces another, different element.
