Like bare bones, the silhouettes are now
engraved into the landscape.
There is so much bleak beauty.
There is so much bright sadness.
Now that all the glamour has been shed,
only the core remains.
And this is where you meet,
amongst all the shades of grey.
With your sorrows and your longings
and your questions.
With your endless awe, amazement
and childlike wonder.
You allow the autumn to draw you in.
And in that bold and cold embrace,
you just know.
It is here you are from
and it is here you will always belong.
