Earth Cycles and Fall Lessons

Earth Cycles and Fall Lessons

It's Fall, my favorite time of the year; the way the late summer sun slants through cooling air, the slower pace the longer nights.  The cycle of the year turns and shifts and I am reminded every day how all things end and begin and end and begin again.

Never Fear the End of Things

Bend down your head, old woman

let the weeds speak to you

bow down your ear

the seeds will speak

If you will listen, old woman

If you will listen

Of shedding flowers

from drying stalk

the fall from grace

of withering cold and terrifying darkness

then

finally

the turning

you cannot imagine how beautiful

the turning is

Old woman

never fear the end of things

they are only

ever

the best

of beginnings
