soon

I cannot begin to tell you
How much the landscape has changed since
You first arrived.
The gardens have leafed
And bloomed
And shed their leaves
Time and time again
Waiting for spring
So they can wake again
And show you how much they have grown
And how they have spread
Their edges touching..
Their green sprouts
And watercolour petals
-a glorious
Untamed garden.
You walked in this landscape
..among lilies and ribbons of ivy
Interlaced throughout.
You climbed these trees
Sitting on the sturdy shoulder of
Our enchanted cedar.
Now you dance on leaf covered earth
Watching the last of fall foliage
Retreat to the wind
Before they touch the ground
And become dusted in snow
Soon.
This landscape
-is part of you
..has been part of you since before your birth.
I planted the flowers
And you helped them to grow.
Now
you watch as the garden prepares for winter.
You watch as you dance
-you always dance.
The dance says what you do not.
You spin
And look up at the sky.
The golden light falls
Around you
And you stop to catch your breath
