The Best of Autumn Rain

The best of autumn rain
Edible mushrooms in the field
Toadstools need no mercy!

The flowering vines
Now in the tender arms
Of the antipodean autumn.

Empty feelings
In the autumn rain
Bees in hibernation.

Who says autumn is dead?
Witness the sacred bambo
In full bloom

The rainy days of autumn
Yellow leaves in full flight, still
Dreaming of the magnesium lost!

Behold the autumn rain
The omens are good
Whales on the way!

Night birds on the prowl
Lots of fun in the antipodean garden
Under the gentle autumn rain

The autumn rain
Washes away my sorrows
Vibrant spirit renewed.
