Autumn Leaves

The wind sweeps the reds,
browns, and golds of leaves
off the ground,
in playful spirals of color and dust.

They turn and twirl,
quietly accumulating
in dark corners and crooks,
then resurfacing, unannounced,
like emotional wounds
unsuspectedly startled
from comfortable, forgotten places.

Rusty feelings of hope and fear
awaken the pain of separation,
of broken illusions,
of desire and rejection,
of past tears and hurts hiding
in the lonely corners of the heart.

Autumn is a beautiful reminder
that life is but impermanence
and change,
heading into the stillness
of winter’s imminent death.

of dark, empty memories
of past lifetimes and lifelines
emerges a liberating lightness
of being,
a peaceful flash of truth
whispering softly from within.
Let go.
