autumn’s requiem

Autumn's Requiem
Autumn’s Requiem

cinnamon’s scent lingers

in air gone cold by

summer’s goodbye

replaced without protest

the deliciousness of a

deep stretch taken

under covers made too

warm by too long a nap

in this dimension where

day and night are balanced

things seem to simply

fall into place

obligations and necessity

meet each to do list with such

grace in days spent gazing

at an autumn sky and nights

spent under goose down throws

with hot tea at hand

these are the days for

inhaling and letting go

  2. This autumn has been solely about letting go… well, there have been a few other things and most noticeable is the exhale. Thank you for your gorgeous word weaving. Great way to start my Monday.
