‘One’

 As the beauty of the day grows

the warm rays are radiating upon the fall foliage

illuminating the brilliance of burnishing brown, flaming orange and wine red

I inhale as I hold onto this moment in time

as the whispers of the flowing air gently flutters 

the inevitable fallen leaves

I exhale as my thought drifts to ‘one’

Curiosity and interest

seeds you have sown in the depths of my soul

Will this be the one…

the one who nurtures the seed…

the one who will cause me to never breathe the same again?
