The half-stripped trees
struck by a wind together,
the leaves flutter drily
and refuse to let go
or driven like hail
stream bitterly out to one side
where the salvias, hard carmine–
like no leaf that ever was–
edge the bare garden.

We’re having -14C temp. right now as the snow falls. So, your photo looks warm to me… the falling leaves in Autumn. BTW, I’ve just tagged you for a set of meme questions over at Ripple Effects. If you’re interested, do join in, but no obligation of course. 😉
Here in North Florida Winter is an infrequent visitor. It sits in my door on an occasional early morning, but by noon it has wandered off. Leaf fall takes months, as does the dimming of green to brown–and then it is Spring.
Today I woke up to a beautiful white world. First time this winter.
What Adrian said so beautifully.
Nice! “Like no leaf that ever was”….
