Trees reach like glowing embers
to singe the autumn skies.
Leaves burst with blinding colour
like sparks that spin and rise
Then a breath of weightless fog
moves across the silent lake
where trails of molten clouds
fill the sunset's smoky wake.
The harvest moon emerges
like a second burning sun
to fill the sky with button-stars
that morning pulls undone. 
Sunlight floods the gardens
to melt the morning dew.
This is where my heart resides
since September gave me you.

Hello, Heather, This is the first of your work that I have read, and I'm glad I did. I like to do a courtesy to other poets and read their poems rather than just wanting mine to be read. I just chose you at random. I must say I was at once struck by your obvious talent. This poem is clean, crisp, and one that I wish I had written. I will definitely read more....George
