October Colour

October Colour

somewhere in october
orange leaf in sunshine

chilly skies in morning
autumn chills our bones

as if a foretaste
of icy nights to come


orange leaves so alien
to summer green

we'd have to notice
(change) is always coming

leaves in the sunshine
shadows overlay colour

shade on vibrant orange
every day is new
so hard to keep up


we watch the skies
listen to the birdsong

our lives are so simple
but we feel victimized

as beautiful as it is
we always (it seems)
want even more
