Another crisp Autumn morning.

I wake before dawn, 

hoping I won't think of you, 

but I do. I always do. 

Though you are not with me, 

I feel you, in the brisk breeze,

spreading golden leaves,

on sacred ground.

Thank you for your kind feedback Paul and Keith. This poem was inspired by the Goo Goo Dolls song Autumn Leaves. I wasn’t even sure which direction it would go. Interesting you picked up on that Keith. I love poems that vary based on the reader’s interpretation.

Life is change V...

Life moves on.

Looking back is a part of moving forward.

The sun must always get lower and lower until it dies to be reborn over another horizon that is just darkness to us.

Your new dawn is just a heartbeat away.
