for me…

this summer’s end seems strange and haunted
the wind has not stopped and it’s suddenly cool
no smooth transition as the feeders keep swinging
no meaningful use, we appear such a fool

though blooms still exist in a garden so fair
they too soon dismissed as a captive of season
I have never felt such an odd empty before
it worries me so there’s an ominous reason

years gone by I would crave autumn’s cooling
feel alive even thrive in the movement of falling
brisk and spirited I’d dance to the wondrous wind
but right now I search for these feelings within

there’s way too much green as I look out my window
the trees even wonder why their leaves as yet linger
not much has been falling while they ride out the gusts
and a moon on this night feels a sinister bringer

t’is the season of madness with spirits about
I am sensing a scurry of curses and spells
I wonder who visits and plagues my good life
to invoke this affliction of feeling unwell

be gone! and to the ready with insight I pray
to deceive these devils I can’t see or name
go back to your darkness or curse someone cruel
I refuse to be less than autumn’s bright fiery jewel!

for me…
