Autumnal Dread

The arrival of fall is an ominous sign,
It’s more than a year, a week or a day…
Another new chapter in time for me,
The leaves fall, the sun fades away.

Hopefully, winter will be kind
Granting me a bit longer stay
To tear off more calendar pages,
Walking further into the grey.

A Fragile Peace

You could hear the trouble brewing,
Faint whispers in the wind
None of us predicted however,
The chaos poised, and ready to begin.

It might have been a rumor,
Or an egg arrogantly tossed…
Emotions, like bombs, exploded
All tranquility was lost.

Their numbers swelled on both sides,
New soldiers flew in with each breeze…
An epic battle had begun;
The crows at war in the Locust trees.
