Winter is Coming: tanka

white trunk
of the eucalypt
against blue sky
while the air cools 

black and white
shapes flit in and out
of the trees —
busy magpies
six months old

on the breeze
that edge of cold
an aftertaste —
or a presage of
the inevitable

vines mingle —
pale pink flowers
of spring 
tricked by autumn, beside
wintry orange  blooms
