cut copper

At first light 

A burnished bronze horizon

peels back the moonlit sky

revealing ambient scenes 

cut crisp by autumn air

relinquished,they fall;

blushed coppers,

caught on a breeze that weaves

swirling like a river

through the bare limbed trees

they flow all around the woodland

to settle upon the ground

a carpet of cut copper pieces

the autumns rustling sound.

your poem Des had me looking at images of copper verdigris and all the wonderful colours the process of weathering produces - not quite 'burnished' but mossy perhaps and not out of place in your autumn woodland. Nice poem, thanks. Col.
