Letting Go

Red sumac signals a transition,

drifting maple leaves a release,

a benediction of reprieve

o changing one,

who tilts the axis to

shift a season, let me

change too, and decompose

ambition and relinquish

so much striving 

my movement synchronizing

with a tender, transformed earth,

my breath with yours and blurred

among the colors, in its brilliance

and oh the quiet
