“Autumn Rainbows” by Celia Berrell



As days grow cooler,

deciduous trees

change their colours

then lose their leaves.


Before they fall,

green chlorophyll’s

no longer made

in autumn’s chill.


So we can see

those leaves unclad,

revealing what

they’ve always had.


Rich-red raincoats


pumpkin patchwork

veins criss-crossed,


flapping honey

leather soles,

and dying, dowdy

paper scrolls.


This autumn rainbow’s

red – gold – brown.

Confetti falling

all around.

  1. Impressive array of images, Celia, with confetti particularly apt in completing the overall picture.
