1/. Leaves held on quite well Until last night’s gales stripped them Of the will to live 2/. Too much fizzy pop Not really good for my health I drink another 3/. Aircraft vapour trail Melding with the clouds above Which raindrop is yours? 4/. Never bog snorkel In full medieval armour Fancy dress mud bath 5/. Dreams don’t continue Into the next sleep session Nightmares often do. Arthur Chappell

I think number one is my favorite, just because I am so in sympathy with the leaves that struggle to hang on and then suddenly let nature take its course. I love this time of year, so poignant.

I thought of that after seeing a tree still looking full of leaves for this time of year and then the winds tore most of them off in one night

I actually chuckled over several of these, the raindrop was poignant, the bog snorkeling funny
