This is a rewrite of the poem about fall.


Morning air crisp and cool, the crunch of leaves
curling beneath our feet
coloring our world in shades of red, brown, yellow
down
down
they float
spiraling
swirling
blowing.

Barren skeletons against dusky skies
the giants soon will sleep
the air is pungent, sharp and sweet
the vee of geese flying south
honk, honking they call out
following their leader

We bundle up for brisk walks
donning our coats and gloves
wind chafes our face
watching squirrels hustle
cheeks full of acorns
preparing for a frozen world

The photos on the wall spread
further down the hall,
adding sons, and daughters,
sharing our family with others
the bassinet is rocked again
revisiting, 'Pat the Bunny'=


Like the seasons
We
change
Nothing
Ever
stays the same
