Fall's Demise 098 (768x1024) (2)

Fall flashes fiery afterthoughts

as I am gingerly approaching greater freedom.

I catch these on my brave meanderings

untrammeled by beloved dogs/

protective family members/

helpful friends.

My need to venture out alone –

despite the lingering pain

and limited mobility –

has not been met by encouraging nudges

to leave the nest.

So I must assume a surreptitious air:

slip silently by my sleeping pets

and watchful loved ones.

The dance that struggles

to be born anew from wounded body

must find a way.

It’s time to get on down the road

and catch the dying light.

    Stunning photos! I loved lingering my eyes on them each, feeling the light of those moments.

    Good healing to you. The dance continues.
