First To Fall                                (C) MSK 9-24-2016

We are the first to fall

Silent signal to you all.

Summer is over; winter comes

Beauty of spring is now undone.


We are the first to fall

Those who listened for the call.

The song continues; season strums

Cycles end as they’ve begun.


We are the first to fall

Summon our young and let’s withdrawl

Leaves change colors; turn to crumbs

Stories told for years to come.

    Touching words.

    Autumn casts a special spell of reflection more than inspiration.

    I harken back to days of Clay. Searching for the spirit in the heart of downtown. Searching ’till the day when the leaves turning brown touch the ground.
