spring wind and rain
sweep through the canyon
as natures house keeper
blowing away dust and debris

if only there were
a spring tonic
for my mind
to save me from
this confusion
and clutter
of the changing
seasons of life

possibly just possibly
this wouldn’t seem
so much like
an early fall

I Like the comparison of the mind to the canyon, the seasons to aging and I am with you all the way....no early fall if you keep the mind busy and the poetry flowing..good write.smh

We all have our seasons, don't we George? I love your season of now.

Hmmmm, yes. I'm right behind you.... but still kicking. :) Thanks, George.

Such wondrous housekeeping goes on in your poem! As long as there is hope there are possibilities and the spring tonic we may encounter...:)

this poem for a starter is vibrant in my heart, then done with my heart heads its resonance smack for my soul.

I cannot help but notice that fall, and particularly an early fall can easily incline either of its two meanings in this poem.

Mind stopping writing, George.

I just love the idea of sweeping through a canyon. Beautiful visual and a real cerebral connection here. Nice!
