Dan Hanosh’s The Moon Also Rises
dreams to come and thoughts of tomorrow

For Those I Leave Behind . . .

Yesterday,
the leaves were green,
today,
yellows, browns and reds,
are all that can
be seen,

falling,
from lofty perches,
another
summer has come and gone,
another ring around my trunk,
as the year winds down,

closer
to the end,
then
to where it all began,
those, many years,
long ago,

staring
through the window, I see myself,
wondering,
if I’ve made a difference,
for those I
leave behind?

One Response to “For Those I Leave Behind . . .”

  1. This poem evokes a mixture of emotions from me; a sense of sadness, nostalgia, death of a season, unease as to whether you’ve left your mark in the world, wondering if the written word will be enough; altogether a thought-provoking poem I can relate to and admire.
