Autumn Heart

My autumn heart beats

like the cold draft from the window

May our days be full of crunching color

like the sun shown through our ancient tapestry

May the softening light meet us gently

like a mother’s gaze upon our wilting earth

May the darkness hold our tears

like acorn teacups in the rain
