                                  morning mist
                                  the tick...tick
                                  of leaves falling

                                  morning sharpness
                                  rain soaked leaves
                                  sticking where they fall

                                  turning the corner
                                  crimson maple trees
                                  dripping rain

Three beauties. Hard to pick a favorite. I like that "tick - tick." But the sharpness in the second one really does it for me

Thanks Bill and Gillena. It won't be long now before we get that real morning sharpness.

Autumn is now well under way now Adelaide. I like the first poem very much,'the tick...tick' is a good way to describe leaves falling through mist...

Thank you, Frank, for stopping by.
We are beginning to see some color here.
