The swirling path from home to unknown
signals the end of a season

A fiery red life lets go of the past
and seeks new rest

The silhouettes of those who follow
swim aimlessly across the blue sky

Although they will be missed
all of these souls must pass

Some will be at the whim of the wind
Others will dance themselves to death

Some will journey alone and unafraid
Others will choose to fly with the masses

Some will find land covered with teeming spirit
Others will find it cold hard and grey

Some will be appreciated for their intricacy
Others will be carelessly torn apart

Some will be piled up, jumped on, and laughed with
Others will be burned

But the home that is left behind
will stand faithful to loving memories of the life it held

Pulsing shivers whisper reminders of the promised
life that will come again

Beautifully written. It gives a person much to chew on. I had to read it a couple of times to understand the deeper meaning, but once I did it made a lot of sense.

this is lovely :-)
I thought it was under the word count but i see you have very cleverly done 151 words in this poem.
you have carefully chose the words so that each one is measured and contains great meaning.
thank you
you have a gift there

You entry made me feel like I want to go write in my journal! Inspiring a writer to write is a good thing. You expressed yourself so well. Loved the last line especially.
