Poems and Poetry

This Autumn | A Poem by Joan McNerney

A flying carpet of
sugar maple leaves
unfurls along my road.

Just enough light to glimpse
silhouettes of yellow trees
against the dove grey sky.

Tenacious… one leaf
clings to the bough
after today’s wind storm.

Amazing how many stars
fit inside my windowpane.
