Adventures Across the Barricades

adventures approaching and across the mysterious barricades


A Fate

Posted on October 20, 2015 at 5:40 PM

A fate better than death;

as the season surges,

the green of life submerges

into depths of brown

and green

and gold.

i'm told

that nothing gold

can stay.

i've seen that happen, 

as i remember -

but as in May,

but not September; 

and October's hues

are met with gazes,

far from views

of pleasant verdant places -

all orange, washed in 

browny brine,

and faceless gourds,

all stand in line.

just waiting - waiting.

they'll have their time,

their moment fast

when children file

farce-faced past.

A fate -

worse than life, but 

better than death;

a timely month for frights

and chilly, comforter nights.
