a few autumn mornings

we wake
to fog’s whisper
air band agape and pale
oval submerged in this quiet
rising

or just
pale dawn, over-
hung, a night of heavy
drinking, the grass engorged, the sky
vacant

or first
frost – tiny ice
swarms in the night, glitters
and winks, a million rainbows blanched
to white

    1. Thanks, Misky. Yes, we get some good frosts here, although it feels like they are getting fewer. When I first moved here, you only had to leave your car outside until about 9pm and you would need to clear the windscreen with a credit card some nights. And we used to get the first frost before ANZAC day (April 25) bit that’s rare now.
