Again - Poem by shawn kiser

Feel it in the air
It's death's sting
Cyclic passing of
The sun moon and souls
Fading glowing returning
Read it
The sting of life
Written in stone rolls over all
We have a moment to love
We must be on guard
Of the approaching storm
We must know
When to let the winds blow
Learn from the leaves that fold
And the branches that let go beautifully
To beauty no more

Hard to smile in Autumn's dawn
The harvest has come
Left us in winter alone
Trees barren
Friends gone
Age begins to crack
The child we were
Sand sculpted by fates hand
All that remains
Is the hard, the jagged, the ugly.
We learn to succumb to the storm
We yearn to let it wash away
To rain down with our kind again
To be reborn
We can smile in winter
We are not lost
We are on the way home
The sting of pain and death
Spring's kiss
