Autumn Within

Spread the love

Autumn blues
as leaves ebb and fade
life’s sombre truth
I brush past reality
embracing the cold.

Strong winds blow
wiping latent tears
Autumn song
I heaved oh unconscious breath
utter soft prayer.

Quiet seas
now beckon to me
and dispel
oh waves of sepulchral dreams
down moonlit beach.

Autumn hues
of auburn and green
cycle of change
for life never stops urging
to go find ourselves.
