Autumn Reminders

I can feel the chill in the air
The sharp sting like lightning shooting through my veins
Shivers deep down into the bone
The smell of leaves falling from their branches
Landing like colorful tarps strewn across the ground preparing to protect it from a harsh winter
The cool orange sun sets early these days
So the stars can shine brighter during longer nights
Entangling feelings of loss and renewal
A much needed cleanse for Earth and life
Seasonal reminders that we need to let go to be able to grow

seasons

Her skin is cold like winter
Soft and icy to the touch
Her head is just like autumn
Ever changing as it falls
Her eyes are like spring showers
As her tears pour down like rain
But her heart is like the summer sun
Burning those who get too close
