Autumn Rebirth by Joanne Olivieri

We flourish
year beyond year
in bountiful succulence
only to be peeled
in succession
rind into flesh
scattering seeds 
of responsibility

our pulp exposed
it's juices sucked
through a sieve
secreting droplets
of expectations
until we become 
a dehydrated cornucopia
awaiting replenishment
in Autumns ascent.
