“Autumn Can’t Leave” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Autumn Can’t Leave”

By Ashley O’Hare

Crispy brown leaves

crunch under our feet

beneath a branching canopy.

The cool breeze styles your hair

as your smile appears

and I can’t help but stare.

For a moment time halts.

All that matters

is the approaching puppy’s paws.

Words are unnecessary.

Any issues can be forwarded to a secretary.

I don’t want to worry until February.

Any plans for the future

can be safely stored in the cooler.

Let’s just live in the now

for as long as the world allows.
