The Uncoupling


The Uncoupling


From remnants of the unresolved,

comes sage insistence:

each beginning contains an end.

There is over time a slow degeneration,

fire to ash to earth wherein

wind wears down protective panes,

& drafts stir the hardest foundations.

Such a wind blows hard

this late afternoon,

shaking maple branches

to warn a sleeping garden

of nature’s fickle dance.

Seasons come undone

as rhythms are thrown,

& even rising constellations

cast cautionary nods

toward reckless aftermath

on this planet of change.
