today is gray. it is cold café au lait. it’s the Seine filled with tears. it’s an outdoor bistro with empty chairs sitting in growing puddles.

today is the acrid smell of decaying flowers, wilted and forgotten behind get well cards too timid to make a stand.

today is the cold chill of knowledge of a fate lingering in the quiet corners of a sterile hospital room.

today is red-yellow leaves clinging to life for one more opportunity to show their beauty.

today is heavy rain washing away seeds — a life cut short before it began.

today is sorrow flooding my brain and drowning my heart with the memories of  events that changed how i feel about this month, and autumn.

today is loss.

how do you feel about rainy days? autumn?
