The seasons change and so do I

autumn has grabbed hold of leaves and pushed its way into veins
altering my perceptions of the small things
inside me.

i posted poems and gathered words like raked leaves
falling short
under brittle tines
pinned to blackened earth.

i said good bye and forged hellos
out of sodden tinker toys
and wondered where i was going.

i wonder still.
