Autumn in the Graveyard

Windfalls of apples,
dull reds and brown leaf
scattered amongst
the creeping mist
that filters through
the wily woven web of spiders,
laying in wait
unknowing of the migration
that followed the sun...!

    I enjoyed reading this poem. One experiences glamour in gloom after reading this -so subtle and so meaningful. Thanks for heart warming comments on my Tanka Poetry. I am deeply touched by the compliments, Harry. -Mohammad

    Great descriptive work I can just see the apple orchard with the leaves and apples on the ground with just a few apples clinging and a garden spider's web spun from tree to tree...Enjoyed reading ....Thanks for stopping by...Sara

    Harry; this is a good poem. I never really thought about Autumn in the graveyard. It can be pretty spooky. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla
