Human Autumn

Inspired by Loren Eisley's All the Strange Hours

Human autumn
before the snow
last attempt to order meaning
before a spring breaks
in the rusted heart
and dreams and memories
fall apart
in irreparable ruin.

Oncoming age
is a vast wild autumn  country
strewn with broken seed pods
hurrying clouds
abandoned farm machinery
and circling crows
family countenance
leaping from place to place
across oblivion.
