Autumn’s End


I walked out under the cold November trees,

sun hidden behind clouds,

leaves now turning to soil –

In my heart

a fire and light

no one could see,

beneath Autumn’s last breath.



Roots deep in the earth

awaiting Spring,

patiently bearing Winter,

knowing life does not cease –

The spirit on the land

more evident now

than when cloaked in leaves

and natural finery.



The last days of Autumn

are more beautiful

than the rest.
