Waning


We frolic in the warmth

of summer’s waning sun

and slowly layer ourselves

for winter’s isolation.

waning


We tread through the corpses

of nature’s love;

fighting off the crispness

of fall’s first freeze.

waning


Time will not wait as we

tender our harvest

and measure our stores against

winter’s coming softness.
