Mark Fraser: Day Two Hundred and Seventy Four – Autumn 2

Posted on October 1, 2011 by


Yes, another unimaginative title. Second of an autumn set. More thought needed.

Botanic gardens

Autumn is brutal
it sweeps across the land like a feisty blade,
cutting out the life that came from spring,
chopping everything down,
ending in red,
war colours pinned to the mast,
crimson and orange and violent;
a slow and torturous end,
leaving burnt bloodstains across the land.
