Drifting lazily
on quiet air, a
cumulus cloud of
periwinkle blue.

signs line concrete walls,
soldiers at attention,
awaiting orders.

Torment disturbs the
ephemeral mist
as a pale peach flash
punches through.

Once golden, thick veined,
now curled and crisp –
Autumn, scattered loosely
on wet tarmacadam.

Hurried footsteps
disturb and disperse.
A snapshot in time,
Quickly forgotten.
