Breaking the Fall


        September's precipice
        . Trip on time's passage
        . . Avenues become canopies weeping orange
        . . . Ripe for the autumnal harvest
        . . . . Transient chill
        Revealed enigmas
        . Another sagacious query
        . . Kindred assumption--
        . . . Is there more to life than this?
        . . . . No one truly knows
        . . . . . God's intentions
        Morose skies fill the horizon
        . Overtures to occidental oblivion
        . . Trees relinquish their possessions
        . . . Hear the forthcoming frost
        . . . . Ethereal grace abounds in brown
        . . . . . Reconciling warmth with bitter cold
        . . . . . . For a seasonal promise
        . . . . . . . Use life's cycle
        . . . . . . . . Creation, existence, destruction--
        . . . . . . . . . Kindling, wasted yesterdays
        . . . . . . . . . . Essence sleeps, until next spring
        . . . . . . . . . . . Reciprocates
