Graffiti Foliage

October races through tunnels of gold,

A graffiti artist spraying rainbow paint,

Striking matches in mountain groves,

And torching cobalt skies.

Too soon, neon tags fade to grime,

Leaving only memories of maple shine.

It's a lovely post, Sarah. Autumn looks so beautiful with the array of colours. I like all your captures but the photo with the blue sky and red leaves is my no. 1. Fabulous! :)

What marvellous colours and words too. I never used to like autumn but I am a convert as I have grown older.

Autumn is really coming down on you. It's almost like an invasion of colour. Beautiful pictures. Many thanks.

Greetings from London.

Just returned from California where their tiny taste of fall foliage has nothing on yours. Lovely words to go with the images!

What a beautiful poem! Love the pictures too. At first I thought the title of your post meant graffiti foliage literally. There is a plant you can write on its leaves as I saw it once at a botanical garden. Your 'graffiti' foliage is so much prettier!

Rose said...

Beautiful images, both verbal and visual!

All, thanks!

I am late visiting my blogging friends, and I am sure your trees must be bare now. However, these are lovely shots, as are the words that go with them.
