SEPTEMBER LIGHT-poem [Sat 9-22-18]

Christ In Winter: Reflections on Faith & Life for the Years of Winter… 

September days are cooler
I walk in the woods
while luncheon dishes

In summer I walk as early
as my body and the day allow
for then the days are wet with

I puff and wheeze
I grow weak and am not steady
Summer days say that I am

In autumn I can wait
to walk below tall pines
until the sun is

Thru yellowing birches
neither sharp nor mottled.
I move smoothly

only slightly
from side to side
to keep the world from
