Come September

red autumn sky

Come September,
I feel the planet
slip on its axis.

There is a perceptible shift
in the light-dark balance
as the slider moves to the left.

Inside,
on the shoreline of my heart,
the waves start to break more slowly
and shadows lengthen to embrace me
in their conspiracy with the autumn skies.
