Burning Leaves


When a conclusion
to a season…
yes
a lifetime
comes and is gone
with fallen emotions
raked in neat
little piles
waiting for the match
as the chill
in the air
rises with the smoke
and the heat from
the flames warms us
as
the emptiness lingers
when the Burning leaves.

"I Believe we are divine by nature." -Jewel

"Some people react physically to the magic of poetry, to the moments, that is, of authentic revelation, of the communication, the sharing, at its highest level....A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape and significance of the universe, helps to extend everyone's knowledge of himself and the world around him." -Dylan Thomas (1913-1953)

"as

Excellent..nice use of symbolism on this one

Just had to read this one again! It's twisted in meaning, not a bad thing. hehe
Just so many meanings in your works. Very very nice Robert!
