6 October – Leaf art

Flames dancing the hillside,
polished stained glass trees,
wild abstract paintings
strewn on pavement’s sheen.
Deep perpetual sunsets
setting on ground and growth,
greenery wearing giant gems
and bold designer clothes.
Bright constellations
of hanging sycamore stars,
fallen red dwarf suns
lying under ruby scars.
All in one small corner
of October’s gallery,
a dazzling show of leaf art
in just one stretch of street.
