Looking forward to time out in Oz

It is nearing the end of the Wet in Malawi and it is autumn in Australia - one of my favourite times of the year. I am looking forward to being there in a week - Out of Africa time is always needed after a long stint. Here is a pic of Hahndorf, the little village near our farm, 1km. down the road... taken in Autumn:

Silvered green and grey cloaked smile,
Drooping leaves and chill held time,
Bird song crisp, and gentled call
Held in warmth … surrender all.
Frost touched earth embraces day,
Stretches limbs of darkened night,
Calls to being moments born
Whispers promise dressed as dawn.
Flowered secrets tease the wind
Caress with colour morning’s dream
And wait for winter’s icy breath
To lead the way to life in death.
