She saunters in

wearing sky high heels, auburn fired dresses.

Titian curls and tresses

swirl with a crisp cool breeze.

Bedecked in amber, crimson, golden fury,

winking jewels, emeralds, garnets, rubies.

Eyes of jade, sparkling embers.

Smokey, heated, earthy fragrance.

She dances a coy rumba through the trees,

shifts sensually, teasing the waving grass,

breathes in late, warm sunlight.

Mystifying

Mesmerising

Tantalising

Full of promise, of mystery:

Autumn is her name
