Saying goodbye again

When they are in the prime of life as autumn nears, they sway in the wind as if to say farewell to us, but also to each other. Creatures they are to me, faces of all shapes and sizes, some facing down as the heaviness of their short life now takes over. The rains are coming tonight, I spent time with them today thinking many might leave tonight, falling down and leaving their heads for the pigs to eat. Oh, Sisters! We enjoy your arrival each summer, and understand you always must leave, leaving a bare spot in the sky by the barn.
