every single ounce of you…

knock, knock,
goes the paradox,
as we watch
the summer end, and
heads towards
another equinox…

left behind
in the summer rain,
smells of you,
while I deliberately
take respite out of view, and

a fallen star
with all the love
in my heart, and
prepare to bid you adieu…

toward the mountains,
while I bound over
the trail less trodden, and

with the flowers
of longer days,
and lingering scents
which remind me
of what’s true…

dreaming again,
who comes into view,
as my heart swells
with the effervescence
of the new,
and I prepare
to cherish
every single ounce
of you…
