Time

trip around the sun
draws to a close
season shift
honors
this
milestone
turning leaves
celebrating
in blaze of color

Hourglass poetry, created by Jane Dougherty, here she explains,
“…the form is inspired by Peter Bouchier’s lantern poem that he christened a ‘pine cone’ poem because its shape grew rather out of control. This is simpler than a pine cone, more like a butterfly quintain…”

The form: ten lines with a syllable count of 5.4.3.2.1.2.3.4.5.
