no time for crying

by Kyle Anne Kish

yesterday, when all the
dead leaves were raked,
loaded into plastic sacks
and put on the curb
for the garbage men,
i sighed what i hoped
would be my last sigh
of the day, broke open
a bottle of vino and
proceeded to celebrate
the end of another season.

much ado about nothing,
i thought, as i noticed
one crisp leaf float
unseemingly across my
driveway, as if to wave
its final good-bye.

i sighed another time.
season's change, live's
are rearranged. i poured
another glass of vino.

I enjoyed this poem very much and see you tend to write in the style of the modern poet which is excellent. Most desciptive. I am an hopeful romantic and do write of romance and love for without love in our hearts and souls, how could we live? Thank you for stopping by and for your kind sentiments. I will be by again, soon.
