As the autumnal equinox approaches, the season transitions from summer to fall. This is a metaphor for the ongoing changes in life - the continual *Metamorphosis*


 A Day that is
     will be
What had been

 A Dream that is
     will be
Or could have been

Thoughts poured out
     Harden like concrete
Then decay -- crumble
     To dust under feet

Changing, forming
     Decaying, dying
Invisible to visible
    Thoughts reviving

Dust we were
     Dust we'll become
     But it is the dust
Where life had begun

 © January 8, 1988, S. K. Smith

Interesting poem, and what one thinks of for autumnal days.

Hello Susan,

This is so "alive" and the transitions so flowing like slides in a projector. Thoughts are what make us - "As a man thinks in his heart, so is he." The "dust" part is where all of us will end, and
used in the final lines, it's just perfect.

Philosophical rendering well expressed...

Interesting thoughts in this abstract, philosophical poem.
I like the way you used the cliche of dust to come back to
the beginning of life.

Reviewed by Mary Lacey, Desertrat
It's so true, life is a circle. Everything will start dying in the fall, be like death in the winter, life in the spring and summer, and it starts all over again. Beautiful words to describe this ongoing cycle.

Reviewed by D Johnson
Susan, great writing and I love the philosophical intentions.
