I rise early to darkness
Autumn winds carry leaves
To their eternal resting places
My cares are likewise swept away
Chasing leaf litter, coaxed into flight
An ancient archer’s angular stance
Patiently waiting with bow drawn
Bearing witness to the ages
Takes notice of my awakening

are the gift of the gods. A light show for the ages. I love this story, just a little slice of your life. ~ Geez.

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.
