She Breathes Autumn

Autumn Trees a Poem by Helen Edwards AUstralian Children's and YA Author and Freelance Writer

Over on twitter, one of our #AusWrites prompts this month is to describe autumn using senses other than sight. Here’s mine. Come and join us for beautiful support and lots of fun! Search #AusWrites

She breathes
Sweet comfort-filled
Earth takes away
Of Summer
Winter’s fingers
Brushing ever so
Across her face
Winds riding
Down through
Rustling amongst
Falling leaves
Taste of sweet
On her lips
She breathes

**Image Description
Red-gold trees stand on a hill in a cluster, their leaves dressing them in golden autumn colours, filling the ground below them, against a grey sky
