Deciduous – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

Maybe you’re not late.

Will you trust Mother Earth

with Autumn’s end

even when you don’t feel ready?

Maybe you are right on time

keeping the cycle.

A tree with your own falling leaves.

Maybe your season is happening

just as it should be.

Plotting a Course – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

Another sunrise through our window
light of reexamination

realization of the rich journey
the roads I would have not taken

without your vastly different
sense of direction

neither of us see West the same
but agree, it is not the end of our daylight.
