Turning with the change of season
I find a simple symmetry
Beyond busy communal living
To spaces of my own mind and garden.
There is a sloughing off
Removal of expectation
Yet not defined by them.
To a subtle harmony with nature:
Fallen leaves bustling across the yard
Welcoming the embrace of the afternoon sun
Slanting shadows sundial Autumn
Birds chatter and fidget while I am still
It is enough
