Poem: "Autumn's Palette"

This was the linkback poem for the November 3, 2020 Poetry Fishbowl, originally hosted by Dreamwidth user Dialecticdreamer.


"Autumn's Palette"


Scarlet maples
burn down the season.

Serviceberries lift
their orange leaves.

Aspens run in rivers
of gold down the slopes.

Pines wear their green coats
against the coming cold.

* * *

Notes:

Serviceberry turns orange in autumn, among other colors.
