The following poem was written for my first attempt at One Shot Wednesday Week 18.
Dampened by Autumn Tears
The season before us, its aquiescence to decree,
Colorful explosion of burning leaves,
Only to fall laden upon the earth.
Time a labyrinth of days dampened by autumn tears,
Eyes eager to fall upon the Hinterland trails.
The tides faintly disturbing the still silence of the night,
Like falling ashes does the darkness come,
Seeking the saltry dance upon the shore.
Riverbeds pulsing like veins within the arid land,
Ears struggling to find solace in your rhythmic heart.
Yet can a soul to hibernation flee away from pain,
Before ones losses of these days dost count,
Upon life's journey, this soul could be lost.
Stillness encumbers the time and space of my being,
To my heart my friends did come, within me lies hope.
