FALLING ORANGE LEAVES?

THE SPIRIT SAYS, NOTHING IS LOST,

ONLY LIKE THE REASONS, RECYCLED,

CLAIM NOT A STEADY SPACE,

NOR EXPECT SANITY’S CALM ONLY,

NO, FOR WATCH THE DANCING FEET,

THOUSANDS OF LEAVES PASS DOWN THE STREET

ON TINY EXPECTATIONS CARRIED SO FAR

AND INTO THE WOODLANDS

THERE TO SETTLE, HUNKER DOWN

TAKE ON WATER & SOIL & SUN

AND WORM & SNAIL CONTENT

COMPOST OF SEASONS PAST

BLACK LACEY SOIL RICH IN EARTH

AND WHO WILL HONOR THE SOIL

THE NEW LEAF & ROOT, BURROW,

MOLD AND COURSING SERPENT

OR TRUNDLING ANT AND BEETLE–

NOT I, PROUD MORTAL, HIDING

IN MY TREE HOUSE OF ROOMS

MY BACK TURNED AGAINST

SPLENDID TWISTS OF SEASONS PASSING.

SPLENDID SEASONS FADING
