Out and in

Our thoughts woven
moving through time and space,
in and out
and back again
gently knotted together
anchoring against
falling apart.
Words like leaves fall
never-ending shades faded
like memories of yesterday
sepia toned life left behind
chasing colors like the wind
as it blows them out of reach,
a handful gathered finally
tossed in the air
as a small laugh escapes
the joy of this day
falling like the sun coming down
on shoulders waiting.
I listen to the silence
embracing the delicate balance
of the in and out
and the back again of seasons slipping
like creek water rocks
watching the movement
rippling out like a song.
I splash my hands deep within
the depths shattered
the reflection of self gone
knowing it will return
in some shape
some form
with someone new to sit here
dwelling in the peace
of a fall image.
