Days Like These














Summer greeneries usher in their rust-eries,

grateful for their effervescent glories.

Blazing leaves stir in gentle breezes

as morning fog rests wherever it pleases.

This road I walk has sheltering trees

and one gold line that lies at ease.

Yet up ahead, no guarantees,

for roads can turn in sharp degrees.

I wonder where it’s taking me.

What joys and heartaches will there be?

Whatever rain or splendid breeze,

sizzling days or stormy seas,

let me dance like autumn leaves,

remembering days like these.
