Surrender

 

Does the leaf strive at “letting go”

its slim stem summon every

last bit of green

to sever from safety?

 

I think not, but how,

I’m not yet sure, suspect

that deep within its

golden skin the moment

comes with ease, 

a certain grace of wind,

rain, or stillness surging

up from Earth’s wild body,

a wisdom deeper than time

through root, trunk and branch

and then, at last

a gentle shove 

to set each leaf free 

making room

for whatever comes next.
