Summer's Fading

Blackberries are spent,
purple thistles
now grandpas whiskers,
bindweeds white trumpets
punctuate hedgerows,
leaves are spinning
and horse chestnuts
prickly booty is revealed.

Willows still sway
while the brook dances
to the rhythm of nature,
soon gold will arrive
with it's Autumn riches.

Even though it is sparing in life you describe it beautifully. Grandpas whiskers made me smile. :)
