The Winter Years

Light
Rain
Rapped
Soggy
Autumn
Leaves
In our
Winter
Years.

Orange
Sky
Lost
Among
Smoke
Stacks
And
Ragged
Railway
Tracks.

Through
The
Smudged
Skyline
I can
See my
Golden
Years;
Faces
Glowing,
Red
Wine
Flowing
Into
Fragile
Crystal
Hearts.

The
Babble
Of the
Scattered
Crowd
Carousing
In cafes
Rising
Into
Bubbles
Of clouds
Above
Them.

That
Drifts
Away
Diffusing,
Scattering
Under
Light
Rapping
Rain;
Splashed
And
Mingling
With
Soggy
Crumpled
Autumn
Leaves
On grimy
Street
Corners
In our
Winter
Years.

As
Rivulets
Of
Raindrops
Trickled
Down
Window
Panes;
Mingling
With
Soggy
Crumpled
Leaves
That
Flow
Down
Street
Drains
Across
City
Terrains.

I
Remember
The golden
Years;now
Clouds of
Memories
In our
Lonely
Winter
Years.

Indeed Nikos, some like Freud, may call those winter years "the winter of our discontent," but others like Aristotle may call them what philosophy has prepared one for: to die well as one journeys to "the isle of the blessed." Attitudes make or break civilizations... Thanks for the insights.
