Sunday 12, 2010 Autumn Song

Autumn Song

So much I need to do,
To find my way to you --
Today I dream of your,
White winter's blanket.

I watch and I listen,
For your Autumn song.

The greens have only begun,
To slip into the brilliant colors.
Yellows, oranges and reds.

The signal that,
This year will be over
Before you know.

Without your help,
It will be complete.

A benediction.
You have had the opportunity,
To walk through one more season.

Prompt #20 for 2010: Last Redwood

They are all gone,
Each in it's own way.
I stand alone,
But not for long.

Without the heart,
To love and care,
Life cannot continue.
The heart has been eaten
By a terrible worm.

It's over,
But life will begin again,
Rise up from the ooze,
There will be another chance,
To get it right.
