31 Days of Halloween: Poetry – Autumn



By Lisa Lunney

Visions of fall foliage

Fulfill the soul

Metaphorically and visually

The contrast of colours

Paint the pallet of emptiness

Once within

A reminder

That in order to grow

We must let go of what is dead

What lingers but no longer serves purpose

We grow

Life becomes beautiful again

Enriched and full

First we endure

The changes

Seasons of life bring


A predecessor to happiness

One we often fear

Each year

Nature reminds us

Charmed are those who change

By showcasing the beauty of transition

The marvel

It is to let we have outgrown go
