Burn by Mishka Hajee

Poem

I watched the season turn.
Summer’s sunflowers have been cut
and the leaves in the trees
begin to burn.

Autumn
is the shedding of dead weight
with every leaf that falls.

We mourn the passing of
warmer months
summer flings
and the familiarity
of former friendships.

If the turn of season
should teach us any lessons,
let it be this –
in letting the leaves drop,
we make way for rebirth.
