Watching the Ripples Radiate.

Chapter 191
Autumnal

 

Blue haze is in the air at dusk

Wet dew descends on grass,

Sunset’s red striations touch

Horizon’s clouds of glass

A heavy silence permeates

With the settling of the day,

And clouds of starlings flock to roost

With nightfall underway.

The homestead paddock’s horses

All graze quietly in the gloom

As evening light turns purple red

To a distant blackbird’s tune.

A golden leafage carpetry

Is spread across the road

And the farmer trudges through it

homeward bound, beneath his load.

The cottage lights are glowing gold

As daylight dwindles now.

The softly spiraled chimney smoke,

The lowing of the cow,

The leafless alder branches

Stretching to a sky of stars

As the chill of late Autumnal

Celebrates the birth of Mars.
