OCTOBER KNOWING

On new wings
leaves pirouette,
ballerinas
in the wind.

October, mighty
heartbeat of the forest
the living cathedral.

Times stops
suspended
like a leaf

October.. brooding
foretelling a silent, cold
majesty to come.
The certainty of seasons
but the earthiness, the intimacy
that is autumn
never lingers
long enough.

October passes
not as the final purge
but gentle absolution.
