Berkshires Tear Trails
Pastel of day light falls dark on the Berkshires,
Golden brown leaves, one on tranquil reflections.
Ripples of water swaying autumn moon inflection
Sailing the quill of night showcasing stellar spires.
Swirling universe sailing duet’s rocking chairs
In sync upon rhyme and matter in shared time.
Holding hands together in full spectrum prime
Moments with mutual emotions in silent prayer.
A spring vow bond approaches the winter solstice,
Where the youth of marriage has dissipated kinfolk
Upon memories of Berkshire tear trails that inspires
Souls mated pride running down cheeks, happy solitude.
Wrinkled lifetime moments that piece together marriage,
Having weathered the economic storms ‘n fighting siblings
That leave the nest - so lonely - in rocking chairs living
Life in Golden Berkshire hues –
awaiting heaven’s winter carriage.
