I. THE VISIONARY SEASON

In autumn, going for
a walk or drive
brings visions
of apocalypse.
The trees burn
slowly, singing
“This is your
fate, too.”
So glorious is their song
that in this season
life, death and rebirth
are one, with nothing
to be feared.

II. MUSIC

God is always
playing His Music,
but what you may not know
is that you’re playing, too!
When you feel inspired
it means you’re in the groove,
playing good riffs,
harmonizing well.
You feel bad
when you hit a clinker,
but don’t stop
playing in the band!
It’s what you came here for!
