An Autumn Day


Salvation
A crow and a snake
Through a midday rift
What is at stake?

Calm
A squirrel and an autumn rain
Steam from a moist roof
Will it come again?

Sounds
A drop and a dry leaf
Birds and traffic blend
A mosaic in relief?

Scents
A flower and a cool breeze
A hunger to the surface
And what of the trees?

Longing
A finch and a birch
Two become as one
What of my perch?

Needs
A fern and a cloud
Grass for the sun warmly
Lost in the crowd?

Fear
A tear and a stream
Canít run from the future
What of that dream?

Visions
The sky and a fence
Damn the haze and mist
What makes sense?

Sadness
A wail and a lie
Stepping through the rift
Where am I?

Cold
A gaol and a stare
The winter is coming
Does anyone care?

Peace
A bird and a seed
Must let one go
Can it be freed?
