Ten Things of Thankful – September 18 2020

Lose me now in the mists of the last rains of summer

kissing the edges of fall, warming my heart and soul

leaving behind the persevering dripples of sweat

opening the doors to the scents of mud sliming away

and earth once more recycles to a new season

oh fall, how you warm my soul and cool by brow

slink into my life, once more with hope

for yet another life of joy

and let the winter’s glow call me forth

but only after I gently pace the shadows of falling leaves.

Autumn and SAD

Autumn brings a change
when darkness comes too early
life can take a turn
SAD comes forth with depression
pleasures once known may be gone
sleeping may be more
energy waning, despite
dozing throughout night
slowing down movements and speech
restlessness, pacing, wringing
feeling less than worth
guilt taking over a life
concentration’s hard
forget making decisions
leaving feels as an option
it may start out young
but age is not the factor
more importantly
getting help is what matters
