a play of shine

My garden blazes shades of amber
in this autumn of light

west sun diamond bright
on the spider net

leaves pricked half-way
between sky and earth glow gold

a ruby red apple
burning russet flames.

These are my heart-stones,
held safe for winter,

a curation of light,
a play of shine.
