Glenn P Garamella


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.

Suspending animation,

until an itch begins

spreading surprise along sleeping roots

into newfound fields of ecstasy.
