Sunday Stillness August 31st

The seasons change
and all of nature
breathes a sigh of
acceptance

Only we humans
tighten up
resisting
wanting life
to stay the same

Think of the energy
blooming consumes
or how much time
and effort the bee
puts into gathering
pollen

Each welcomes the season
of rest
the tree does not mourn
losing its leaves
the vine does not weep
at turning from flower
to pumpkin

They all know of rebirth
of growth
of change
of rest

All sink into the turn
of the season
the change
the morphing from
one to another

Foolish human
breathe
simply breathe
and rejoice
in this very precious
moment.
