Autumnal Procession

Leaves are falling with the rain.
Darkness is upon us once again.
Hooves splashing through the mud
dance with sycamore colours,
they are no longer flesh or blood
but the shape of time’s procession
riding shadowed through the rain.
Darkness is upon us once again.


I’ve decided to re-post this old poem along with a procession of photographs celebrating the colours of autumn and recording the dying of the year in it’s all beauty in my local area. All these photos were taken at places within walking distance of my home in Penwortham. They include Greencroft Valley, Hurst Grange Park, Castle Hill, Central Park, Carr Wood, Avenham Park, the Ribble Way and Riversway Dockland.

    Lovely sequence.

    The Autumn colours seem particualrly intense this year. Today the wind is strengthening and clouds of leaves are being blown off the trees and dancing along the ground. A dramatic episode in the transition from Autumn tyo Winter.
