Autumn Leaves

The summer has said a fond farewell

It’s getting cooler I can tell

The leaves are rustling on the ground

Fallen acorns to be found

Squirrels squirrel them for the winter time

So that’s just fine

A hoard of food

So that’s all good

I feel them crunch under my feet

As I walk along the street

Acorns leaves and tiny branches

All along the Woods and Arches

I can’t see the lovely colours these days

It’s all a haze

Of white misty blurr

To others it does not occur

As they go about their busy lives

And I sit here and try to work out what to do…

My heart is beating and I’m just fine

But my vision is on a steep decline

And left alone I now be

As people rush about their day

And not say hey

Come out with me

For lunch or tea

The winter leaves are falling

And new climes are calling

I became interested in poetry and try to write about things from my heart that are associated with events in my life or events going on in the World at large or closer to home. I am a visual artist and still am to a certain extent having exhibited some of my work as a visually impaired artist using sponges to paint. I have lost most of my eyesight in recent years to advanced glaucoma and my vision is now very limited I am finding my creativity now evolving in writing poetry and hope to publish my own book of verse in the future. I have a blog page on Wordpress where I share my poetry, art, photography, thoughts and favourite quotes and prayers at
