Leaves Surrender

the first surrender is to color
the second is to be untethered by the wind
and the final surrender is to perish in form and replenish the earth


The sky is my teacher
offering lessons in
fleeting, ephemeral, perfection.


Walk the soft path
in the cool water.
It is purpose enough.

The View from Heaven

Nature will keep the pond’s promise that the world will green itself in Spring.
Things may appear upside-down, but everything is as it should be.


Water flows over and around the boulder.
It is not an obstacle, this is just the way of the path.
