The Lookout


August morning breezes chase the humid air back south

Fall seizes an opening but one not yet big enough to pass through undeterred

For now, the cooler winds must settle for clipping just a handful of feckless leaves

While collaborating with one lone scout charged with spying through the darker days ahead –

A lookout ready to move forward, eager to charge ahead, and yet

Fully convinced that surrender is not a shameful option

And that winter need not always conjure death
