Autumn Glow

Autumn Glow A butterfly pirouetted in corn stalks. What  I wondered was it doing      in this  late October day? I had reached my beeches, for another  year of wonder. I walked, or rather stumbled along the dusty track and looked  over at the land meeting the horizon in gentle wold folds. It was quiet enough to hear nature in the raw. Birds flew disturbed from the trees while insects hummed and buzzed an autumn symphony. Ahead, along the path lay   Notgrove  or was it Nutwood  in  Rupert Bear land? Stepping into the grove,  a  tree-world  filled with leaf  encrusted  paths and I felt a  zephyr of  wind  move the evergreen leaves. They seemed to make music,  far above my hearing range dancing notes that  swayed  in graceful  leaf minuets.   Spiders groomed and cobwebs swoomed laying down their traps.  Leaves were falling and sprawling to be received  by the  ground underneath. Winter would be coming

Deer Me

Dear Me. Contained Always looking  in the shadow behind reality in a day-dream wondering. or merely  confused, as thoughts  passage their way through the hemispheres. I listen and sometimes in mind's eye visualise the monks chanting  and moving  beneath  as of old  A ll the ages  becoming as one. While cobwebs swoon  and spiders groom preparing their traps. Our webs are more fluid, But in the chime of time we are  all caught. Autumn warmth as precious as a stolen kiss pervades the interior And so I pause  and savour whilst the world  continues rutting ebbing and flowing  and  I lift my coffee cup and drink in life.
