Summer loving

1-copper_beech_canopyGo now but I’ll lodge here
under eaves of copper beech
twisted canopy of colours
rhythmic limbs atremble
kaleidoscoping secret summer lie ins
a spangled mosaic, upwardly mobile

go now and let the thousand-and-one falling leaves
litter me deep in wintry sleep

Whimsygizmo has given us leaves in all its meanings to kick around for this Quadrille #15

  1. go now and let the thousand-and-one falling leaves
    litter me deep in wintry sleep

    Seems to be a tinge of sadness in the prospects of seeing leave but told in strong hints!

      • One of the cool things about the Quadrille is that it’s open all week. 🙂 And that we can post more than one, if we want! 44 words is so fun to write, and so easy to get around to read and enjoy.

  2. This is so evocative…..the wily eyes, the thousand and one leaves, the wintry sleep to come. Sigh.

    a spangled mosaic” — a piece of musical art. Thanks for sharing.
