Cant remember where
But in the busy travellings of last week,
alone in a lane of green leaves,sStood a single tree
clad in oranges and crimsons
lighted with brief yellows.
I have just two seasons clothes,
Summer and Winter.
‘Layering’ is supposed to fill the gap
And so, I sit here
Jeans, T-shirt, hoodie,
Where once I would have had
an autumn coat
With thin woollen gloves.
Like the tree.
