A Poet’s Autumn Heart

when a poet’ heart is autumn
somewhere far away
a winter begins
that never finds answers
to its prayers
for a spring

poet’s shedding heart is a sign
its tragedy is heard in
the dying stars
towards the end days
of an universe
that forgot its most
beautiful autumn

poet’ heart of fall
is a fading song

battles of the world
are loud with
death of a new color

it recedes gradually
into a season less sky
