Scattered Leaves

When shadows drift across the moon
And clouds conspire to block the sun
When stars appear but fade too soon
And all seems lost while nothing’s won
I think of you and sense the light
I think of you and feel the glow
Especially in the dead of night
And in the swirls of icy snow
When life’s great song is out of tune
And things to do just don’t get done
When winter seems to last til June
And work becomes a treadmill run
I think of you and feel alive
I think of you and start to smile
Especially when I see us dive
Into a loose leaf litter pile
When rest is short while chores are long
And future visions seem at odds
When even progress still feels wrong
I think of you and thank the gods
