  • I like the way that you made this slip seamlessly from beauty to death, Rachael. The structure here forces one to read slowly and with passion. Well written.

    I like the final rhyme “earth/death”, because it’s also a visual rhyme… a little death as you say, not a real death… just a part of the cycle… the golden cycle of life! Beautiful – et vivent les Gingkos, arbres de merveilles – wonder trees :-)♥

    • Rachael Charmley says:

      Thank you, Frederic. I wanted to make ‘light’ of the death – the transcience being of greater importance…
      This is the tree in a pot in my kitchen garden. It has three maples as friends, and together the colours are so beautiful right now. 🙂

    Beautiful and a bit sad, as many of your poems describing the transience of nature are. Lovely words, Rachael.
