Falling – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” F. Scott Fitzgerald


Autumn peeks through summer's long reign
with teasing tones and the gentle beginnings
of letting go, there is a softness here as time
crosses playfully, and I notice that I too have 
left the door ajar and, finally, things are falling
into a newness long anticipated in a dream.

  2. Your poem beautifully captures why I need to live in a place with four distinct seasons. With each new season comes the potential for a new beginning, a second chance.
