suddenly I wonder (why is it autumn)

suddenly I wonder (why is it autumn) – 08/03/2023

suddenly
the rain fell down
like
summer had been broken

suddenly
the wind
was chill
reaching all the way
beneath
a blanket

that was right
inside the house

laying across my bed

how
does it happen
that way

I ask myself
but
I don’t know
any thing
but the summer
has –
suddenly –
been broken

the sky
is grey clouds
rollin in
like mountains
from the great beyond

and suddenly
I feel my age
I am an old man

a little shiver
as I watch the so-slow
trembling
of a droplet
falling in slow-motion
from a tired leaf
not used to holding
the weight
of water

like me

not used
the vagaries
of sudden change

I’m looking
now
for my eider

I might go
back to bed

maybe
I will
go back to bed

and wonder
