Autumn feasts upon the soft scenery
trees-bushes-grass swallowed by light.
Wind walks along the river
conversing with birds and small creatures.
Autumn readies itself
to close an eye inside a long white landscape.
until an itch begins
spreading surprise along sleeping roots
into newfound fields of ecstasy.
