silver birch wood in autumn (Scotland)

crossing a metal bridge
over raging water
river tumbling
rocks in abundance

the way is muddy
slippery
music from the river
infiltrates the air
captivating my mind

skeletons of silver
some naked in totality
others clothed
in frippery
yellow fluttering

mist in the air
ethereal so magical
enchantment lingers
in droplets
clinging to twigs

kathy:We don't have silver birch here in Cornwall maybe that is why they captivate my emotions.
