Autumn Breeze

AUTUMN BREEZE

When the magic is gone
	and all the stars have fallen,
do I just sit and wait for my final calling?

Is there still something
	to do, out there, for me?
If not before, then when comes destiny?

Ashes tossed, will I be known
	as husband, father, son?
Can I leave this plane with things undone?

Fair poetry I weave
	but words are falling leaves
and my soul detects an autumn breeze.

This piece feels familiar, at age 64. Thx. And thx for visiting my ego-centering way. Gerald Oliver

Good poem but I'd be tempted to put a comma after "before." Not that it needs it but as an aid to clarity.

Thanks for liking; you are the second, though, for mentioning my punctuation and, as such, I have edited it to create better understanding. I take criticism of all kinds gracefully. Thanks again for reading, I hope you will continue to read me.

Keep writing is the best advice I can give you Keely, everyday if you can but don't feel guilty if you can't. Welcome to the soup and thanks for reading and liking.

It's sappy but also good. Although Your use of commas (not to mention the absense of, but necessary semi-colons and colons) is wrong, I like it! 'course you can opt for 'sans' punctuation since poetry is art; Therefore, Skwoo da wulz™!

Most times I'm a fiend for punctuation but other times you just gotta let it fly. It's all cool, bro, glad you liked it.
