Summa Summarum

the sum of sums

is that we can never give

more than we take

that autumn will tumble into spring

without winter being noticed

loneliness becomes a need to escape the crowds

and even the brightest of sunrises

inevitably turns into falling sunsets

holding on with its burgeoning embers

(previous published in Adiago Verse Quarterly)
