Vows

I vowed I would never say
that leaf is already turned
or
it’s not here yet
or
we’re having an early fall

I vowed I would never say
the heat is finally over
or
there’s one last blast coming
or
the garden is slowing down

I vowed I would never say
I guess I’m finally growing old now
or
I’m at the prime of my life
or
which part of those glasses do I look through now

I vowed I would never say those things
but…
be careful of promises that
can and cannot be kept.

At This Point In my Life

Be well, and at peace,

Phil
