Seasons Change (for the free people of Libya)

Seasons Change

Slowly, Slowly, for the free people of Libya


Slowly, one by one

the leaves turn

and red returns

where green once held.

Slowly,Acting alone

yet part of the collective

branches call the uprising

until all are one

and the revolt is complete.

But always

it takes one.
