Autumn's Call



farewell
poetic journey
words penned lovingly
autumn's mist leads you homeward
peace found


written for dVerse celebrating friendship
and saying goodbye to fellow poet
Dave King

I didn't know him well, but read his words
and was touched...

  1. as one journey ends for him
    yet another begins...
    as we continue on our own
    a touch ever so brief to push us
    each our own way.

      That is so true..but, yet our lives have
      been touched by a beautiful soul
      as he crosses into the other realm

  3. On his way
    To another bay
    Well we continue on
    To another dawn
    Never knowing
    When away to another place we'll be glowing
