Love in Autumn

The rising moon luxuriates in golden splinters, sunshine left behind by fleeting summer’s heat.  

Sunbeams dance, twirling with woodsmoke from evening chimneys, en pointe across the mountaintops. 

Trees stand tall, reaching for the sun’s last kiss, hiding young love’s laughter away in shadows deep.

Together they move, from sharpened shadow to shimmery splinter, below the dance they look for laughter, seeking kisses long since stolen, locked away in time’s sweet satchel.

Unpack, you travelling thief, and bestow the riches you horde! 

Oh, sweet Time, you are no thief, but rather Lord’s merchant trading stolen kisses for hearts held fast.  You take laughter left in shadows and enlighten with joys unkown.
