7 Autumn Moments (6)

The words you said,
 like kisses in the cold
 overlooking the vistas of all
 you'd never done; all that you
 hoped and meant to do --

These were my inheritance,
 my keepsakes, my treasures
 to return to as a mountaintop
 experienced within misunderstood
 autumn before knowing

How all that besets us and
 bedevils us can turn into
 that which soothes and comforts
 us once we realize
 that perspective sharpens
 as eyes dim
