oh, autumn...

you infuse your rich, warm, honey light
straight into my marrow;
stoking an inner fire that sustains
until winter has had her way with me...

your golden harvest nourishes and delights
my every sense...

your winds sweep the chambers of my heart;
making room for more of you
to kindle my devotion...

I will walk with you;
cloaked in surrender, 
through your honest crucible of permutation...
