Autumn

Leaves cling trembling to the branches

Quivering in the breeze

Flame bright in the sunshine

Poised for the next adventure

Waiting for the wind

To release them

On their journey into the new

Sailing on the air

To an unknown destination

Standing Watch

The old man stands

Keeping watch over the waves

Time passes

Sunrise to sunrise

The years day is long

Tides ebb and flow

Through sun and storm

Still he remains

On guard

Waiting for the day

When he will be released

And come to rest

Eternal

Tatties and blackbirds

The autumn sun emerges from behind the clouds

Sending shafts of sunlight to play in the garden

While the dry patch lasts

I head into the garden

To harvest the last of the tatties

They emerge from the ground

Precious jewels of the earth

Tumbled into the bucket

I stand

Admiring God’s work

And in a tree

A blackbird starts to sing.

NB : For those who aren’t used to English slang – ‘tatties’ are another word for potatoes.
