Autumn clothes

Cant remember where
or when.
But in the busy travellings of last week,
alone in a lane of green leaves
stood a single tree
clad in oranges and crimsons
lighted with brief yellows.

These days,
I have just two seasons clothes,
Summer and Winter.
‘Layering’ is supposed to fill the gap
and so, I sit here
Jeans, T-shirt, hoodie,
slightly chilled,
where once I would have had
an autumn coat
with thin woollen gloves.
Autumn clothes,
Like the tree.
