geese going


                                    That time of year again.
                                          They honk goodbye.
                                                 Another leaf dislodges itself
                                                            from the yellow birch tree,
                                                                    sails past on its way to 
                                                                             the ground.

                                               Ah, Autumn.
                                                        Awe . . .  again.

 "To Life"

 late turners, these
green leaves are stronger,
leave later,
 last longer  -

not unlike
late bloomers, who
 need more time to ponder,
get there slower,
hang on, to hang onto

 Time cycles replaying - Look,
another year, and 
         you're still here,
    to see,

to Be.
