Changing Seasons

By Penny Wilkes

The weather changes
    Socks lose their mates
          Traffic and noise annoy
Tastes fade
   Friends lose interest
           Ideas wander 
We notice a
  slide
    a dwindle
         or a drain
 
Without looking
    backward
       or forward
One moment
    lingers
      for attention
Then buoyancy
    lifts us
      as we marvel
             at the sunset
Discomforts
      slip away
           into the sea
