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
Bitterness
Of Summer
Fading
Winter’s fingers
Brushing ever so
Lightly
Across her face
Winds riding
Down through
Valleys
Rustling amongst
Falling leaves
Taste of sweet
Apples
On her lips
She breathes

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
