Dark brown, orange and yellow life sway in the cool October breeze.
Fragile and clinging to life, each one fears what they can’t escape,
The inevitable forcing them to hold on, the quest for one more day.
The days pass, the grip loosens and darkness overwhelms them-
Floating gently to the ground, memories of sweet summer days fade.
Meeting the earth, it welcomes them promising new life, another chance
The rain has ended
Solemn skies no longer weep
Clear blue skies triumph
A slippery slope,
The mind wanders
Lost in tranquility,
The slight turn of the head, a look
Delayed ecstasy, a glancing touch
Watching, wondering, feeling
The struggle continues
With each fleeting glance
Seen from afar
Calm, sweet patient longing
Words escape the obvious want
A lifetime spent looking back, but always waiting for tomorrow.
The hope of tomorrow, the promise of tomorrow.
We sell our souls for tomorrow.
Cessation of time
Marching forward through burning
Embers of a soul
Unleashed in its madness
To see the truth of what if…
Walking in beauty
Small footprints on Autumn’s steps
Eyes, open and wide
Tasting each moment as if
We had never existed.
