Sudden Gusts...

Artist's Description

“A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made.
The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air
."…Eric Sloane

“It’s mornings like this;
The stingy sun trying to hold back
Even the warmth of its reflection
Flashing coldly In the lake.
When November leaves drop in sudden gusts,
Like a red and yellow flock of birds
Swooping at once to ground.
Or even nights:

When winds reach wet hands
To take you spinning with random paper
Down back street gutters, under straining bridges
To clogged rivers.
It’s this:
The time of year, along with spring,
When poets must take care
Not to sing the same old songs
Stolen from tribal memory
"…Thomas R. Drinkard

A pale misty autumn morning by the river, when even the trees seem insubstantial and ethereal…sudden gusts tear the last leaves from the branches..November

Watercolour on Arches Not Paper..
