In the Autumn of Life

In the Autumn of my life,
When the wind of reminiscence blows,
The storm of wistful longing rages.
Swirling mists surround me.

Frozen moments of the past melt,
Old memories blow and reel,
Falling eventually on the ground of my heart
from the boughs of my mind:
pale, blur and forsaken;
discoloured and decayed;
dry and broken, they are
raked into a medley of fallen stars.

I pick them up.

They rustle
and finally crumble
with my delicate touch
leaving specks of dust on the fingers of time.
