Collage: Autumn

Walking this morning

A street mourning the loss of its trees

A chain saw cuts the bodies of the fallen.

I scavenge some of the bark – art materials can be found anywhere.

Further along, another street

Deep in thought, I am oblivious to what lies under my feet.

Suddenly, my senses kick in and I become aware of the multi-coloured carpet I am standing on.

Red, yellow, orange – the autumn leaves glow in the grey light.

After the stresses and strains of a dry, hot summer, the trees shout in triumph:

‘We have survived!! We now prepare to rest.’
