Dripping wetness from the trees,
leaves just about holding onto greenness
with the expectation of a
glorious blaze of colour yet to come.
Surprising sunny days,
reminiscent of summer,
but a chill in the air
and comfort food
hearty soups and sticky toffee pudding.
Darkening evenings and sparkling clear nights
and the faint promise of
cosy winter evenings tucked up in a quilt,
Wondering if it will snow.
