As the leaves change, so do people.
The fun that was had one year ago,
now just a passing memory.
The sun shines upon the rocks and water,
reminding of the love shared this summer.
A caressing breeze guides me on my way,
leading me to uncharted ground.
I close my eyes and breathe calmly.
I open them to watch Mother Nature as
She caresses the leaves of the trees around me.
I feel surrounded by love yet I am alone.
I am at one with nature.
Finding myself and not knowing I was lost.
A void filled that I did not know existed.
What else have I been missing?
On the way home, I see a lady.
She is tending to her flowers.
They will soon be covered in a blanket of snow,
but that does not seem to matter.
The faint buzz of traffic
reminds me of the duties I have.
And ends this moment of peace.
