Endings

Endings break my heart

sometimes.

But sometimes

they can’t come

fast enough.

Nothing new can start

until there has been

an ending.

This is not profound

or deep

it’s so simple

we forget

sometimes

To live

to love

to grow –

we need endings

before we can do any

of these

And without these

we are nothing

Change

Summer
has grown heavy
and dropped from its stem.

The sun sleeps in
a little longer,
leaves the party a bit earlier.

Last night
felt almost like fall
while today is
crisp and sunny.

The leaves are still green
but a shade paler;
chlorophyll
begins to recede.

Time
to change.
Welcome back,
my dearest Autumn.
