Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Autumn Leaves Me Sad

on September 21, 2014

It’s been a funny morning.
Rainy, breezy, timid sunshine
No more summer, not yet autumn.
It can’t make up its mind.
Strange sadness dwells in me.
And then the geese fly by
To tell me all is well.

No ordinary migratory
Birds are these
Who fly from here to there.
These winged creatures stay all year
And fly around for sport.
They welcome me who’s been away
Now back to shed my tears.

    v’s in the sky… cloud…
    no…. wildfowl migrating
    following the sun
    sadness…. i feel it
    wind blows cold…. chills our bones
    fear not… spring will come
    with it… happiness… new life
    swallows… smile… be the summer time
