Seasonal, revisitedI used to hate the approach of fall,Seasonal, revisited by ~Beneath-the-Leaves
The readiness with which people accepted
The end of the summer,
A world of change.
Today, I break at the way that leaves
Ever so gently caress the breeze.
Or maybe it’s the other way around – the breeze touches the leaves –
Either way, they find each other and
Float down together,
Whereas the strongest summer squall could never get the most stubborn foliage
To leave home.
And I wonder at how I could have ever been so afraid of something so soft, and so lovely.
I used to think the summer would fill me;
Autumn air blows cool through my cracks and holes and flaws and eases the scalding of what I know is deep imperfection.
Mild weather reminds me that all storms past.
Naked trees show me we cannot always be whole, but that does not mean we cannot be tall.
I’m learning that everything knows when it’s time to go,
And the changing leaves
Don’t scare me the way they did a year ago.
