Rainbow Seekers Passing Through

Gently, autumnal breezes

Whisper over brown grasses

Through summer greens

Yielding now yellow and orange.

Like the caress of sweet Chernobyl air

Is life in surrender to death

Forboding a familiar numbness

Opaquely covering the soft nuance

Of a summer day giving way

To the inexorable coming of winter.

Longing, memories already fading

Into dreams and Paper Castles.

We are Rainbow Seekers passing through.
