turning leaves have a way of making me look at life a bit differently
stopped by their beauty, i long to pause and take a deep breath
to sense the maturing of life
and consider the beauty and growth
that comes from the the waning of life
so many life cycles
so many beginnings and endings
if i took a lesson from the autumn leaves,
would i hold on so tightly?
would i fear the coming season?
would i doubt rebirth?
would i sing or would i wail?
if the leaves took a lesson from me,
would they give their gift so freely?
teach me to let go
teach me to be
