Darkness falls on me

I feel frail and transient

Like an autumn leaf

On a path to destruction

Moments of beauty

Alluring for a second

The truth is hidden

Underneath veils upon veils

The fog of seasons

Obscures the far distant shores

The cold winds of time

Reveal beautiful shadows

Shifting and restless

Fluttering briefly in light

Slow falling at last to rest
