Day 351 – On The Cusp Of Autumn


Charlotte Cuevas

On the cusp of autumn
the world is opening, opening,
the road is hurrying to meet
those intrepid feet which dared to dance
alone in dark cobblestone streets.

There’s a chill which is coming
to change the air, to entice out the dreamers
to climb a midnight stair
and join the regalia of starlight,
the fast-burning joy of the night.

This is the prize for those who have worked
long days amid summer’s rage,
against temptation’s shade, empty winds
that seethe and blow sand
through the trees.

A reprieve has been granted for us,
it is here-
by the grasp of our faith have we come-
at last, to the harvest, to the cooling moon,
to breathe in bigger dreams
for next year.

About davidmbeecroft

Hello and welcome to my blog. Please feel free to have an explore. My name is David Beecroft. I am 38 years old. I co-founded and ran a small scale touring theatre company called Screwed & Clued in 1998. I went on to tour the Canadian Fringe Theatre Festival circuit over the following five years. I have written six original plays, the last ‘The Poe Show’ won a Best in Fest award at the 2014 Ottawa Fringe Festival. I worked in a social care setting for ten years and now work in a special needs school. I have sent my first novel off to agents and considering self-publishing if that does not work. I co-host a radio show on Surrey Hills Community Radio called Daves of the Week where we feature charities for a six week period. I live with my fiance and two pet Degus. I started this blog when suffering from depression and attending therapy, so a large part of this blog was about my experience and thoughts of that. Since then I am in a much better place and I write about life after depression and how I stay (or try to) ahead of it happening again. I also like to look at the happier sides of life and try to put a positive spin on serious subjects.
