Autumn Bliss

I soak up mellow sunshine

to store for winter bleakness

Clinging webs drift in the lazy breeze

Honeyeaters suck nectar 

like a child dragging on a straw

the dregs from the bottom of a soft drink bottle

Crickets chirp an autumnal harmony

Swallows flit busily

in their hunt for innocent insects

Toadstools push up out of the lawn

like alien spaceships


Smoke billows from crop stubble fires

to rise up and join cumulus cloud towers

leaves and petals pepper the path

autumn’s confetti

on the cooling earth

All’s right with this day
