In the dusk of the year
we stand wreathed in flying leaves
and restless skies watching
the dark half of the year turn closer
remembering the cold that bites
beneath snow-filled cloud
and our dreams full of fire.
In the twilight of all things that matter
we lie down on scorched grass
and watch the storm clouds gather.
No rainbows will follow this deluge
no ark no saving graces.
No dawn will follow this night
of no moon and no stars.
