Poem Credit: A moral character is attached to 
autumnal scenes; / the leaves falling like our years,/ the flowers fading /like our hours, / the clouds fleeting like our illusions, / the light diminishing like our intelligence, / the sun growing colder like our affections, / the rivers becoming frozen like our lives, / all bear secret relations to our destinies. ~ François-René de Chateaubriand 

Minding Winter

"The seasons are what a symphony ought to be: four perfect movements
                                     in harmony with each other." ~Arthur Rubinstein

For perfect movements love harmony and so
each feeds themselves to the mouth of the other

Four perfect movements love harmony and sew
the seamless seems of the one, un-woven linen

no more life against death for me
for me and me and me

out in the wide open dropping degree
diaphonous crystalline linen
nothing is near nothing to wear
nothing makes nothing together

forgetful of being

with nothing to weather
