AUTUMN SMOKE SIGNAL

The summer sun is fading as the year grows old

And darker days are drawing near

The winter winds will be much colder

Forever Autumn;

Justin Hayward

The chimneys started early

in the season,

revealing woodsmoke secrets;

upwards

through the dying trees;                       

whispers in the wind,                       

over there, that house:                                                                                      

cancer!

she’s sick again,

blood’s thin against this sudden chill.

  1. Awesome prose. I find myself re-reading, and hearing a different cantata…music from my inner self, watching me listening to another; instead of being led by the directive rudder… which leaves me angling wangle, only to discover…the inner meaning, that someone writes from their song.

    Sing pretty butterfly…sing
