Sleepy rays reflected playful on warm
ripples of green and blue.
Shadowed vapors harken season’s change.
Loss of innocence.
Lazy rays of sun
Set on summer’s waning days
Each end a new start
Seasons come and go
The only constant is change
Love shifts never falters
I carry the lantern of my love for you
illuminating our brightly colored souls;
it casts shadows in varied hues of gray.
Colors dance in the flickering flame;
we create newness in union of glow and shade.
Wind has no care for
The blossom blown from the tree
Life’s beauty is fleeting
Time surrounds us free
from our imposing nature.
Trapping us in its.
