we are falling all of us
from summer into autumn
thrill sun seekers into
hot apple ciders
the warmth of hearth &

a welcome reprieve after exertions and
emotional springtime revelations

life is the thing we hold on to
while so many fall behind
world weary & ready to
wander off into the universe
as energy released
time capsules set to somedays
a lapse inside the blink of
God's Eye

i've never felt so ready
never quite been so scared
of what now stands before us
as Ramadan begins and
the world turns once again
toward the cold of uncertain tomorrows
Salaam and make room
for more emotions, but no more sorrows....?
