Magpie 239 - Moving In

Autumn in Madeira by Jacek Yerka

Leavings of Fall
bringing a new chill 
to the air.
Clouds of winter
covering the sky.

Time to enfold
wrap the outside up
and bring it in.
Move inside
for the winter.

Moving in
till the first days of spring
sprout from beneath the snow.
Center life
around the hearth
wrapped in secure walls.

The last of autumn
is moving out
pushed by the winds of winter moving in.
Fall slipping
behind the clouds.

I appreciate all kind comments on my art and poetry.
