SUNRISE REMEMBERS AUTUMN     2013 Meg Devlin Irish

She winks and blushes
then sidles as if to tease
in fiery assent over mountain top trees
Aureate beams, burnished strokes herald on blue
as sunrise remembers Autumn!

She twirls down branches, haplessly crumpling leaves.
Their rusty mottled presence purports to deceive.
But, for creator, giving a grander view,
Sunrise remembers Autumn!
