We shouldn't fight against ourselves when letting go of deadened leaves
while trusting in the signals our bodies give,
the signals intuition provides.
There is a time to let go of dying leaves,
all colour draining from us until left bare
while looking to the process that provides food to the trees,
refuelling their barrenness without dwelling on uncertainties.
For there is always growth and fruitfulness for trees in springtime,
for all life from which we too, in part, complete.
