A Sweeping Exit (Day 563)


Riding the crest of summer   
autumn a rising wave   impossible 
winter brown and blue 
victorian maiden who gathers up 
her bright serrated 
wind  shivering for spring  
rising   rising   to greet another 
seems   somehow  impossible   
deliver us into the warmth 
rolling in from the sea   green fading 
to gray   she makes 
a sweeping exit   leaving us 
to seek our own illumination 
in the obscurity of her violet shadow
