Entrance exam into spring

by Widdershins

Age Group: Adult

Was I truly watching the fall leaves…
absorbed in going along,
do they whisper death to me?
eyes are staring fixedly ahead—
they do not see…
all they are watching is a feeling,
something caught in a memory…
so sorry to see it fall brown and dead,
when it should be blossoming green
the winds stir that same warmth,
will it come yearly…
is this a new cycle ending,
one more year has past…
not reminiscent, no regrets
just a feeling that will forever last…
spring doesn’t mean the same to me
as it once did… it’s forever
locked in my heart, as always,
but something changed it… made it sweet,
sometimes something that I seek for,
always, I want to see that green.
I want to hear the bells of hope,
chiming with every step I take…
I want to feel like I’m safe, I’m saved
from whatever ills befall me
to know that somewhere I have caused
beauty… I’ve caused beauty…
was I truly watching the fall leaves…
absorbed in going along,
do they whisper death to me?
as was once entwined in a song…
color me strange for remembering
such fragments and never making them whole,
but like the summer only means the wonderful completion,
so spring brings hope and love…
no strings are webbing it around, like all else,
though in spring I ever speak of fall…
and when fall comes I truly see death,
when my memories begin to blacken again,
then the stunning rebirth of life… in winter,
but sometimes it, too, aches like a blister,
riddled with difficulties…
once I was asked, would I have expected
everything to be so difficult? no…
but neither could I answer truthfully…
that I wanted to be saved… and was…
once I was told that it clearly shows,
I’ve been through many of these deep cycles,
when in truth it had been my first…
but now, I can safely say,
I’ve lived up to the statement of that day…
spring bears new meaning for me,
summer sometimes I love, sometimes not…
fall brings back my nightmares and fears,
and yet… I love it too, it’s especially
created for me, this feeling,
just as all other feelings belong
to someone other than me…
once it was my entrance exam
into the ways of the path I walk—
to enter spring, and learn how live the living,
once after that it was more than that…
and it still remains to only be…
a very close,
very dear memory…
many laired and filled with delicate intricacy…

Author's Notes: Hmm, I dunno where to place this really... it's about a personal thing, but it could be a devotional piece... so take "other" as almost all of the above in one ;)
