Slice of Life Story Challenge March 22 -The Rapid Decline Of Autumn Magic
The Rapid Decline of Autumn Magic
Melbourne, my home city is renowned for its interchangeable weather. The classic Crowded House song, 'Four Seasons In One Day' is in part a salute to The city’s variable weather personality. It certainly never gets boring when planning your day’s events. Complacency is a recipe for disaster. Carry an umbrella at all times and sunscreen, just in case.
In the comparative bleakness of the morning, with rain pitter-patting against the study window, these words rained upon the open page of my notebook:
Yesterday the sky
The sun on my back
Warmed my bones
Hang despairingly low
Like a sook’s bottom lip
The wind is a bully
It slaps my face
Bending trees to its will
I wonder where the yellow went?
