All Things New

It’s a familiar September
Earth pies in usual fractions
I fall with Autumn’s retraction
Years long gone I still remember;

Although leaves will soon dismember
Sturdy are the roots that feed them
Underneath already new stems
Pulse with life in hope of springtime
Listen look beyond the gray lines
My eyes see now bright sparkling gems

dversepoets.com Open link night. Poem of choice. No prompt. Thought I would try a decima.

Next week, a break

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    The cycle of life is so amazing and it happens all around us. We often just take it for granted without even thinking. Very nice poem Mary.
