Autumn sky



creek's cool air is an irresistible fragrance
as morning sun surges above grey clouds

turn me
to necklace of colors:
tangerine gold-
pink watermelon-
yellow maroon-
orange emerald-
amber tamarind-

and i'm lifted on wings of black birds
sparking a tumult against autumn sky

  5. I really like the form of this quadrille, Grace! The first two lines have the shape of those grey clouds and I can smell the 'irresistible fragrance' of the cool air of the creek.
    Then there are those wonderful colours - in the shape of a tree trunk, with the reflection of the autumn sky below it. It's an image quadrille! Superb!
