***

October

It is not death but truth

The chilly breeze reveals,

Lavishly clothing the oak

Before stripping her bare

***

Evergreen

Beg to be an evergreen,

Striving for the golden mean,

Never shaken but serene,

Bowing not to fate’s routine.

***

Hope

Tell not the young!

Spare them the pain

Of bitter hearts.

*

Rinse them. Dry them.

Wrap them in white,

And set them free.

Best wishes,

David J.W. Inczauskis, S.J.
