autumn dream


The rain falls before

the trees set aflame

a fresh cleansing

for love’s claim


For sunlight’s ease

shortens like the days

but remains steady

through this phase


The light awoke up

made us believe dreams

fears retreated, doubts cleared

and reality ripped seams


As we shift seasons

taking a step forward

we shed a dead layer

knowing what we move toward


Lively green sets aflame

beauty before death crunches

a shedding, a preparing

for fruit’s new bunches
