Irrevocably Loved By God

there dogwood lingers
lost in long and cooling nights
side by side with sassafras
brooding over browning grass

and sumac stands
with red oak and sheds
leaves in broad daylight
while maples paint

in crimsons, scarlets, purples
yellow brush upon the air
and splashed across
the transom of my heart.tumblr_nxd364udX81qat5pio1_500winds and rain come now
and colors muddle, fade to dull
and make their ready to fall down
into the soil dark that croons

and calls them to their fall.
and I am shattered in this fade
of yellow birch and maple red
the flower of spring is there unmade

and frost laments now come in lace
and nibble at my tender face
and precious profound beauty
here and gone and metumblr_nx6vxz9xeX1rum5sfo1_1280that hardest of hues to hold
as my life falls in leaves of days
is here and gone in just a wink
and nothing gold can stand untouched

and how is it, Eternal One
can love so strong and fierce this shade
who passes from the day to night
and fades into the mists?tumblr_nwyhsqnAN61rf0rtjo1_1280

    • I actually love this one, especially around the line

      “…and I am shattered in this fade
      of yellow birch and maple red

      and frost laments now come in lace
      and nibble at my tender face
      and precious profound beauty here
      and gone and that hardest of hues to hold

      is here and gone in just a wink
      and nothing gold can stand untouched”

      Nod to Robert Frost with that “nothing gold”

      I understood your email, btw, the comments about inside. I held them like treasure
