autumn gusts
shudder ripples
on the river

rafales d’automne
frémissent des risées
sur le fleuve

seasonal rains
turn muddy paths into
frozen puddles

heading home last night
my cane slips on a patch,
leaves had turned to mulch

yawning blossoms sigh
whisper tender lullaby
through an autumn wind

fairies chant
chorus of yellow flora
sweeten pleasant dreams

~

fleurs béantes soupirent
chuchotent une douce berceuse
par un vent d’automne

fées chantent
refrain des fleurs jaunes
sirotent des beaux rêves

arbres se fixent aux teintes
guident citernes sur la voie maritime
sous nuages sombres

trees cling to last hues
guide tankers on the seaway
under grim clouds

Photos taken crossing le pont Champlain, these strips of land, one is a bike path leading to the Old Port of Montreal. Tankers sail along these waters as well.
