it is october mostly fallen

it is october, mostly fallen
& still falling
and i already see the after
the anticipation of spring
but before that first step
climbing March is dreamed,
i rake leaves before wind takes them
where empty things go

what falls now nourishes later
& I dig to feed what isn’t planted yet,
turning over hope

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. A thoughtful piece about the seasons and what they represent to you. I loved the idea of planting and preparing for a time of change and the hope which sustains you through the months till Spring. Brava!

  2. I am looking at this thru a beautiful lace heart~ magical !

  3. Your words paint the eternal cycle of the seasons so well and so visually…and then you go forward into the philosophy and biology of season successions and feed-ins and links!
    Well done, Susan! This poems respires and inspires!
