Updated on May 4, 2009

The leaves were just changing colors

when we parted ways

the nights grew much colder

but so did the days

Clear, crisp and clean

all that was new in spring

died with the cold that the autumn could bring.

I walked through the park

as the leaves tumbled down

like silent tear drops

they slipped to the ground

an Autumn rainbow

red, russet and brown

and I walked through them briskly

just to make sound.

As it grew colder

the snow came to stay

and washed all of Autumns colors away

and the silence was deafening as it clung to grey

and the nights even longer

as I clung to day.

My fingers make contact with the cold window pane

just so I'll feel something again

but I like the emptiness winter can bring

and I wait

with much trepedation

for Spring.
