one moment : an intuition (of autumn)

Poem #298 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.

Back to Bachelard and me – Introduction


my heart
knew
the summer flowed
an ebb

away

but
in my mind
when I looked back
each day
stood
as one

alone

the day
that it shone

the day it rained

the day
I slept until
my lunch
had passed

the day that came
the day
just gone

each one stood alone
as summer
flowed over me

and now
today
a leaf will turn

from green
to all the shades
of brown

and
on a day
to come

each leaf
will choose its time
to fall away

one
by one

they
will go
