her petals had fallen
but her spirit still rose
at the drop
of a leaf
the flight of a raven
the scent of wood smoke
through her soul

the chill of autumn
promising more
the turning
of seasons
reminding her
of seasons turning
the passing away
of summer's dubious gifts
and resurrection
of calmness
and quiet

rose hips
promising more
roses would bloom
and then blow away
petals dropping
spirits rising
roses again...

Sometimes Ever After

Quote of the Day: "It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit."

-Robert Louis Stevenson
