Autumn Walk

Red orange range rainbow.
Crimson umbrella berries.
Vermilion maple robes.
Magenta Virginia creeper.
Sumach in flames.

Mahogany chestnut globes
in thorny green spheres
fanned by five yellow leaflets.
Quivering ochre of a poplar.

The ground’s flushed complexion
tinged maroon
colour washed
by rusty russet leaves
and gilded by
the low sun’s golden glow.
Hestia’s flames and Iris’ tones.
