Autumn

Posted on Posted in Wonder

Autumn hues capture the imagination

of all those blessed enough

to feel the crisp air on their skin;

the mesmerizing evening scene

soothing souls, slowing steps

that crunch leaves in catharsis

 

The landscape

burning a brilliant red

like a million dying suns

enveloping the distant horizons,

glowing away the last warmth of wisdom

awaiting to embrace the darkness

 

For the summer sun shines no more

but cold winds conquer the night

The battle against time

is the only one inevitably lost;

Every glorious story ends, yet remains

etched in hearts for eternity

 

Oh how spectacular can letting go be
