  1. This makes my heart soar in appreciation of the season…I loved these lines:

    dying does not

    lead to death

    but a fading to sleep

    for a season of rest

    Beautiful and inspiring read.

  2. “…dying does not

    lead to death

    but a fading to sleep…”

    I spent my first five years in America’s Midwest. I remember all the grownups saying, “The trees die in the winter.”

    Why did no one say, “The trees go to sleep in the winter”?

  3. The ‘spectrum’ of season is truly breathtaking, a transition in nature’s presence and purpose. I surely miss the floral burst of leaves’ readiness to fall in a blanket of beauty and decay, a life cycle metaphoric to humanity’s arrival and succumbing to the maturity of their years and deserved rest. Here in the west our foliage remains evergreen for the most part with a dappled pallor of earth tones for season’s measure.

  4. “brief reminders/that illustrate why/life is better in spectrum” I just love these lines and hope beyond anything else today that people letting either fear or hatred consume their hearts and mixing all their own hues into a pallid gray, can hear echoes of your words here and begin to heal. Also, when you talk about composing a new world, I am reminded of a time in my whimsical, and yes, lost days, when a thought kept arising from my soul that it is possible to ‘compose a world’ and that God is actually rooting for me to do so, and that we would do it together. I haven’t thought about this inspiring message for quite some time, but your poem stirs my soul.
