goodbye autumn

cold soundless morning

sudden fluttering of air

another leaf falls

Winter has arrived in Melbourne and to counter rising energy bills the very last of the autumn leaves are falling . This beautiful little one has come down from a semi-deciduous Liquid Amber. After weeks of cleaning spouts and raking the ground from the fallout of a giant fully deciduous cousin these leaves can be picked up by hand as they individually set off on their journey . In the image below here they were waiting on for the right time to depart.
