Autumn Menu

yellow loosestrife

Autumn butters us up, spreads

gold on crisply toasted grass

to melt beneath a harvest

moon; honey stored by busy

bees on bold summer evenings

sweetens the dry offering

with a sheen of liquid gold.

    Liquid gold – absolutely. That might describe the whole season.

  2. Oh Mel! I only had to read the first 3 words, and I was craving warm buttered toast–and I just finished lunch!! Arrggh That honey sounds really good too–oh dear, I may have just lost the day to eating…..

    Oh beautiful – picture & poem! 🙂

  4. Love the ‘sheen of liquid gold’ line to sum up the remnants of summer. Autumn has indeed arrived and the bees have taken their honey to some place else. Lovely, warm poem Melody.

  5. Ever feel you’re being swaddled in your own sacred manger-lulabye?

  6. Melody, you’ve made autumn look, taste, and sound delicious to this spring and summer gal! Nicely done!

    Blessings ~ Wendy
