What Doesn’t Change

Given the time

I will rearrange

the songs sung

as trees change.


Leaves fall in fall

slow transitions

before their

final positions.


Strewn upon the

ground on streets

blowing in wind

that all can see.


I’m unashamed

to feel like this.

To bend in wind,

my fall is bliss.


I am not what

you might behold.

On the outside I

might seem cold.


With time I do

change complete

from head to toe

down to my feet.


I travel in time

on a time machine

that falls back

to tranquil scenes.


In seasons weary

I repeat routines.

I rapture distant

pristine memories.


Yes I’m aware that

life it can change

but I will always

one thing keep same.


Inside resonance,

in hallowed halls,

reverberates your

voice above it all.


No cold season will

take you from me.

I’ll hear your voice

in an eternal breeze.


Planted I run deep

rooted principles I

am everything today

but I’ll kiss it goodbye.


Everything changes

so I willingly receive

a change of weather

with thoughts in me.


Ruminations complex

form perfect veins

where you flow in me

will never change.

    Jared, you’ve given Autumn such deep meaning that ii could easily describe the complexity of rebirth in humans dealing with ever changing events. Lovely!

  4. I especially like the lines “I am not what you might behold, on the outside I might seem cold.” They remind me that I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, and it also reminds me of the scripture that says; “Man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart.” I’m also very thankful for that scripture. Awesome poem.
