Restraint

All before winter, the morning light
splashes over yellow and gold leaves
dripping with optimism
and reds clamoring for attention.
You drink your wine and coffee with cream together,
somehow an admission of all things
and your unwillingness to choose.
The seasons are changing.
The table has been cleared
for the season of fasting.

One thought on “Restraint

  1. Oh Susan — this is glorious ~ rich ~ so much before the table is cleared. More of the world can be seen once the table is cleared. Fasting is a precursor to fullness — only God.
