The breeze hints at coming coolness
the evenings come suddenly sooner
as the squirrels burying stores and
the geese gather for a journey.
Adventures and summers come to
a close, in the way of life-cycles as
everything moves in circles toward
a future of one type or another.
We are all nomads and nesters
stability and passion
motion and sedentary and
we are all-in on the next thing.
Even if the next things are the
old things, even if the old-world
is new, and the new world is old.
Motion is life.
And we’ll put our memories
into their place, give our hopes
to our dreams, and love the
changing leaves of autumn.
