Autumn in New England

The hurricanes have ceased,
orange and gold leaves fall,
and dusk approaches
while I brush my hair.

In my line of sight
books beckon,
music entices,
prayer tempts. But the one
to whom I belonged
has betrayed me
and I have vanquished him.
I am inconsolable
and weeping.

New England is prized
for it's autumnal glory.
How I wish to watch a kite
rise, alone on a hill of majestic hues

but the kite,
so fragile and tentative
would crash under the weight
of my grief.
