Autumn Awakening

The magic begins…

leaves rustle on trees,

dusting the air

falling to our feet

rubies and emeralds

dusting the toes

 

A hint of cooler airs

stirs the blood

causing it to waken

from the slow sludge

of humid, hot summer

 

The spirit quickens

now is the time

for a honing of skills

an awakening of creativity

 

September brings alertness

no longer encumbered

by the blanket breathing

still life of summer months

 

Donning light sweaters

we wrap them about us

as we venture new beginnings

chins up, we brave the world
