My Time in Town

Fall- Credit: Julia Solonina/Unsplash

Now autumn is here

With leaves falling down

There’s only the church

And me in this town

A single church road

Black gate at the ready

The wind whips my hair

As I try to stay steady

My camera is pointed

At the beige and dark grey

I snap off a shot

And I’m on my way

My camera returns

To the bag at my side

Now what to do next

I need to decide

I sit under a tree

Full of yellow and brown

As the leaves start to fall

Swirling all the way down

The book that I open

Is full of old fables

One has a princess

Trapped in the stables

Time passes swiftly

The stories all read

I’m still quite alone

It’s now time for bed

I gather my bag

With the book safely packed

So much is changing

Except for the fact

That autumn is here

With leaves falling down

There’s only the church

And me in this town

Leaves change their colors

And the sky becomes dark

So I head to my home

Through this beautiful park
