Low Autumn Moment

A water altar from Russell Square

Low autumn sunlight catches the top of the fountain.
Families and friends and couples and solitary souls
sit or stroll.

Ground-fall leaves are crunching brown already,
no moment of golden glory
for foliage exhausted
by this long summer's story.

A moment, an unexpected pause.
Dry leaf landing in fountain fall
shimmer shines, on this water altar reflecting
tree life still standing tall

Or just the shadow light
for a moment, caught
as the people pass and park-life moments
memories pass unthought.
