April Poem-A-Day 2012

Day 11 – a season 


Bolting home from choir tonight
feeling that still air invade face
and: bite!

The stars almost crackle,
they’re so bright,
and sunset brought fire
to the palette of light.

A self-sown apple tree
undresses with delight.
The rest of my garden
prefers holding on tight.

High pressure bringing
warmth from the Bight
promises just one more week
of welcome respite.

But Autumn is adamant
and spoils for a fight.
“You can have nice sunny days
but I claim the night!”

Cardigans gripped around
naive bodies, tight.
Lamplight, & chocolate:
a welcome sight.
