Finally – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Photo: Jarrah Loops Trail, autumn.

“Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it.” George Eliot


Autumn finally arrived,
although it was already quietly
lurking in the corner of my eyes,
having slept in, ignoring summer's
alarm well past the expected,
slowly disrobing to bare limbs
and those austere, rosy tones,
precursors to winter's grey wilds,
and cosy, snug hibernation.

The trail for the day was 20kms. The day was warm for walking, but not too hot. However it was a long morning getting to this spot for our late break. It seemed like it was never going to happen. But we finally made it and collapsed happily on our log chair that nature had readily provided. A bit like getting through a year really. And today was unusual in that it was the most relaxing day we’ve had for weeks, a real break in a long run, and it has been a long trail without many log chairs to sit on. And now there’s the next section, there’s more ahead to entice and look forward to, and I wonder what’s up around the next bend. Hope that’s true for you too.

Finally it is 2018, Happy New Year fellow bloggers.
