lessons from leaves

the leaves begin dancing their way

down from the heavens

to the cold concrete

they have learned how to let go

how to die and be reborn

so beautifully

and all on their own

they have learned that often times

the darkest periods must be passed through alone

they have learned to dance through loss

and embrace change with open arms

they have mastered the life/death/life cycle

with vulnerable strength

and have shown me just how much

I still have left to learn

from them.
