The Lost and Found

Fall has found me at last
with its bright sky.
It has unfurled and danced
across my vision as I listened
to the soft muted sound of trees,
dreaming and lost and forgetful

Fall has turned the sunny heat
of my longing
into a broken leaf strewn sidewalk
crunched into tiny fragments
of feeling,
where you brush
me against the wall
with the coolness of your breathe.

I have lost your song
to the birds flying, flying
away to a more noble tree,
I dance to silence
in search of summerís symphonies.

Was the vision of September
a wave that horizons only see
on days when fools are made?
I am lost without this illusion,
forsaken by my own skin,
cold and shrunken.

The cement holds the heat,
slow to give up, until time
and night bring the chilling
and I call your name
across the idle hours of morning
and warm to your answering call.

I was never gone,
it was you that was missing.

Martie...your talents as a poet are growing stronger with every piece you post. I find myself seeing your name and looking forward to what ever surprise your words may hold this time
