this urge to rake again
the ashes of autumn

    Autumn aka The Fall is an intriguing season as we have too long been used to the late Spring resurgence of nature, and then the warmth and sometimes heat of Summer. We can be taken by surprise in the Northern Hemisphere on both a natural history level as well as on a personal plateau.

    Autumn can be seen as a time for contemplation after the holiday atmosphere of the warmer side of Spring and the heat of Summer.

    It has provoked in me many feelings such as:

    drifting rain
    my hundred autumn rooms
    to be alone

    Hi Marion P! :)

    I found this a very atmospheric ku, since for us November is the month of the Holy Souls and all the bonfires have been extinguished, leaving ash in their wake. Very effective.
