Turning the corner I feel I've arrived at the place I started from
Looking back the road still stretches on
Standing still I cannot stop the change

The season is coming
Leaves crumble underfoot
Skies change signalling a departure from youth to mid life
Autumn beckons to its cooler sibling
Preparing for the challenge we must all face
The final path towards what lies ahead

Colours
Change
Then
Fade
Light
Develops
Shade

The streets are uneasy at this time
When the twilight separates the day
Party goers , lonely wanderers, the disturbed
And yet
As the darkness fades
All takes on a new perspective

The real disappears and the routine begins once more
Uniformed of mind take their places in the daily experience  
Isolated beings for the sake of repetition and familiarity
Weak every day through the months and years
Until
All stops

Those in the shadows prefer the unknown and unexpected
The challenge of survival without a  fragile safety net
For it all ends for all
How we reach that point depends on our perception of a life lived

Water
(Floods)
Plastic
(All wrapped up ready to throw away)

We were here
Time to move on

Watch out universe here we come
