Autumn 2019

By John I. Blair

After months of heat
And doubt that clouds
Would ever come again

Autumn enters in a rush,
Blowing leaves and limbs
Across the lawn,

Drenching my little world
With welcome rain,
The miracle of moisture.

Knowing nearly 80 years
Of this, why do I
Still see a miracle,

I who firmly cling
To lack of faith in miracles
And cry there is no wonder?

Itís time I listened to my flesh,
Responded to its thrill,
Abandon rationality for awhile.
