Autumn of our Lives

A brief moment of beauty, fulfilment and acceptance;

a time when effort and work are reduced, mulled over

and remembered with gladness and joy.

Autumn, the autumn of our years, comes slowly, calmly

and acceptance reduces the hurt.

Gradually the winds and chill of life weaken us

and reduce the strength of limb

but not of mind or spirit.

The spirit remembers the springtime of energy,

of new ideas and of inspiration. 

The spirit remembers the earlier years,

the years of creativity and enthusiasm

and the spirit holds those years.

They are not lost.
