Seasons Change


This morning as I was driving after taking the kids to school

I noticed

Look closely or you may miss it

It begins at the top, ever so slightly, beginning to fade

At first glance, things appear stable

But I am watchful.

I know that soon the metamorphosis will occur

There will come a time when it will seem

to have been overnight to the incognizant

But, I will know that it began much sooner

slowly, little by little, branch by branch

And they will fall to the ground and scatter.

I admit

these first signs cause me to be a bit apprehensive

I've been here before

I know what is looming,

I am not yet prepared.
