Autumn Falls

Updated: Nov 26, 2023

it rains more often

now that summer ends

it is a salty rain that comes

from the sea

when the wind blows

and the wind blows colder now


there is a sad abundance

for nature knows that she

must die

or sleep perchance to dream


still the leaves are green

and the sun is warm

yet summer's end is in the air

and it's getting darker

day by day


the streets turn grey

but the cars keep rushing by

oblivious or maybe just indifferent

cut off from the changing

of the seasons
