Autumn Colours

Autumn came in a choked fog of smothering grey
Retinas froze & fractured in patinas of old clay teapots
The trees came out in sympathy, 
Their lifeblood withdrawing from roots of cold Earth
Leaving only valiant crimson, browns and golds
As sepia reminders of glory breeze days and innocent glades
Not even the late Sun could persuade them to stay.
Bleached, hungry and withering now, their blades fell like wistful tears
Parchments of love letters to the humans remaining
Saying "We will meet again, one spring. Have faith"
