TURNING LEAVES
(11/24/18)


there's
something about
that subtle shift
of color

contrasted
by the underlying
dark bark

that makes
me feel
a passing

of time

of opportunity

I have
seen
more autumns
that I shall
see

I still
appreciate
each one
as they come

I guess that
now
is the only
moment
that counts

as the wind
moves the
trees

leaving them
more bare
with each
gust

moving
me further
into my
own season
