Halcyon

Autumn, by Michael Koenig

Recite

a charming tale

as we stroll the halcyon path

Vivid

memories come trickling forth, fall

from our cold trembling lips

to rest among

the leaves.

Author’s Note: Dedicated to my dear friend, Michael Koenig, who graciously allowed me to use this beautiful photo he took of his leaf strewn pathway.
