Autumn’s chill on the river.

A softening of sunlight;

Summer’s warmth and

Brightness fade.


Live in autumn —

Play out your hand

with the cards you’ve been dealt.


Fewer moves to make,

Fewer pieces to play with.

Make each move more deliberate.

Make time for love.


Do it well.

There may not be another round.


And, this morning on the river —

Forget about the one that got away.
