Treasure Island

Suzette Richards

(Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA)

Autumn Dawn


vapour is rising
in wisps from
the dew covered lawn

overnight
snails had collected
on the garden wall
lining up and greeting the
morning sun as it breaks free over the mountain range

the plumbago hedge
with its tufts of white flowers
appears
surreal
on this autumn dawn

in the autumn of our lives we tend to
view things in a kinder light –
influenced
by the understanding that all matters are
not to be
defined
black or white
