“Autumn Day”

basking in the brightness

of a mid-day autumn sun

i sit and contemplate

the changing of a season

taking place all around

me, leaves changing and

falling and laying scattered

across the lawn below,

a surrendering, a changing

of the guard as days

grow shorter and nights

longer in this cycle

of life and death,

another year getting

ready for bed, waiting

for winter to tuck it in
