in another cycle

in another cycle

like a fallen Autumn leaf
upon the lawn of the approaching Winter
we drift aimlessly
seeking a purposeful place to rest

we are blown across this landscape
in our attempts to escape
the recycling of life
as we acquiesce

the test ?
is it for consciousness
or allowance ?
will our defiance matter ?

i look at the bed of the forest floor
matted with the years
of repetition.
this is a game that time always wins
in all ways

there is a silence that abides in the wood
or perhaps it is i that does not hear
are the Trees singing praises
such as we
to this regenerative truth
or just going along
with the way things are ?

i wonder do they despair for the fallen
those who were once the offspring
the children they held
and fed upon their limbs
only to have to let go
as the incessant march of the ages
played the tune of a reality
that must be

and i too
like that fallen leaf
may be in a state of wonder
or perhaps not
but with me, this i do know
the winds of change
are dancing, tickling
all of life’s branches
and ever moving

sometimes gently
sometimes brisk
sometimes harsh
as i await that bed
where i may rest my head
in the winter
and find my solace
as i give back to life

in another cycle
