Autumn (Two Tangled Leaves)


Two tangled leaves

Tumbling together in silence

To the ground

Clinging to each other

Against the pull of the relentless wind

Such melancholy falls on me

Trees stand bare and cold

The long autumn shadows

Dark pools lapping at my feet

This season of endings

Always alone now

Under steel grey mourning skies

Lost deep in my memories

I stand in the darkening

And follow their journey

Those two tangled leaves

For the longest of times
