from you, To Autumn

It is autumn now


The last time we spoke

was when the summer breeze

was still kissing the trees


Now they are dying

their brittle dances

wherever you are


It is just lively here


Those twigs have grown

producing lilac and crimson

petals that eat

the ground up


You would be quite envious

of that cold cutting

through the edge of the earth


How juxtaposed is my mind

that I should think up

warm touches

while frost bites my cheeks


I remember that sun

those rays calculated

now drowned out by this

vast grey that mars my sky


I’ll remember that feeling


How fleeting those feelings were


They lasted

but only a season

a sign that

nothing ever lasts
