It is life's way to triumph in its surrender.


Frail, the autumn
stem breaks in
a frigid wind.
Released,
the leaves,
in burning tones,
spiral earthward
upon our heads.


Frosted pumpkins
piled, waiting
by a scarecrow
ever brave.
Barren branches
claw the sky,
the sun sinks into
an unmarked grave.
 
Harboring
her waning strength,
the Earth withers
in solitude.
The life she craves
cannot stay;
it must be planted
before death intrudes.


So another season
may return
from the seeds of
sacrifice; she
forfeits the game
accepting the desecration
of time's passage
as hope's dread price.
