Autumn, by Lisa Lunney

Visions of fall foliage
Fulfill the soul

Both metaphorically and visually
The contrast of colours
Paint the pallet of emptiness
Once within

A reminder

That in order to grow
We must let go of what is dead
What lingers but no longer serves purpose

We grow
Life becomes beautiful

Enriched and full

First we endure
The changes
Seasons of life bring

A predecessor to happiness
Yet one we often fear

Each year
Nature reminds us
Charmed are those who change

By showcasing the beauty of transition
The marvel
It is to let what we have outgrown, go.
