Autumn’s Remains, A Poem

I have a beautiful friend, Seema, seemingly a world away.  I guess that’s the beauty of social media.   She requested that I write about what I think about when I envision Autumn.  It has been on my mind a lot lately – the beautiful golden colors, the deep red hues of others are testament to this season’s beauty.  To read her take on the beauty of the season, you can read her post here:

 

Drifting Contemplations: Fall Micropoetry

 

Autumn’s Remains

 

I feel Autumn’s remains

Of sunlight on my back

And the cold crawl

Of shadows

Of yesterday’s promise.

Soon –

It will be time to let go

To seek deeper meaning

Than this branch

And this tree.

What is meant for me?

I do not know

But I do expect

It to be glorious.

A day has not passed

That I was not thankful

For that moment,

I was alive

In every exhaled breath,

In every breath taken in.

Sometimes, it is courageous

To not see what is left behind,

To gather all your sorrows

But to seek out meaning

In the prospect of a brand new day

And all that it shall bring.

      You are welcome. Bet you thought I wasn’t listening 🙂 It took me a while, but I kept you in mind. I was easily reminded by the changing colors over here. Do you get any changes like that? I love fall – but at some point dread the cold of winter.

          Oh, that’s pretty cool. I sometimes try to imagine other places, but you just don’t know until you have witnessed it yourself 🙂 I can’t wait to see some photos. Your fall isn’t the same time as ours, is it? So neat to learn something new.
