Red is the colour of autumn. As the maple leaves turn red, the flocks of red and green King Parrots move to the red firewheel flowers and the beautiful red rosella’s return to nip and nibble at the twigs while tiny red robins hop around the baring branches.

Words to walk with:
From Poetry and Religion by Les Murray
“There'll always be religion around while there is poetry
or a lack of it. Both are given, and intermittent,
as the action of those birds - crested pigeon, rosella parrot -
who fly with wings shut, then beating, and again shut.”
