a reminder

wind retreats
trees remain trembling
clouds gather in the horizon
gladness in a glance
lifting eyes to reverence
of rain coming filling the rivers
fattening fish travelling upstream

where are the lamps
bearing insights of the deep nights
separating shadows from the light
a book of virtues, a listening brook
a day of kindness when autumn
spread a welcome
step by step stages of blessings
will you be filled with gratitude
if trees are heavy with snow
do birds’s absence mean
they are hiding or do we miss
them playing with snowflakes?

days are shortening and much colder
you have to remember to close
your bedroom’s retractable roof
a forecast of snow next Friday.
