Autumn cusp

Late November dawn. Sun’s rays slanting low
Filtering through a haze of naked trees
To stream, in weakened state, through my window
Caressing my face, as the darkness flees

The colour of the light, warming my walls,
Banishes thought of winter’s cold fingers
And, though, daily, the temperature falls,
So much of autumn’s beauty still lingers

Red leafed vines paint the near terraced skyline
Green woodpeckers laugh with unshared reason
Persimmon, holly, mistletoe and pine
Nature’s decorations for this season…

(And Christmas does not feel so far away)
Replete with hope; new birth, new life, new day ~

    This write sings ... beautiful rhythm and I love the "terraced skyline" ... we're having a blustery, rainy day with skies that quickly go from black to gray and back again. We're so fortunate to have an "inside" ... smile ... too many homeless folks and why they come to mind is just my trip ... meanwhile back to the holly and mistletoe ... smile ... so glad you're here at The Soup!!
