fall time change


so much beauty
so little choice in autumn
caring enough to die
leaving the scenery in melancholy
shades of awe

when going always seems to be the call
when staying leaves you open
to the utter boredom you know
you’re sure to find

ragged branches
already disavowing the lost
warmth

and now, so much earlier
seeking refuge from the dark
