Autumn Music

Japanese maple
hunched like a pianist

fingers of flame
tap keys of earth

Beautiful. I've a soft spot for Japanese Maple, love the way you've personified it. Need to go and take a look at mine now.

Yes, a wonderful "stone" for today- my dad loved Japanese maples so they hold a place in my heart as well.

Beautifully written with its vivid imagery at play. I used to play the piano so I can picture this clearly in my mind. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.
