The leaves carpet the ground.
A walk across the yard yields
a satisfying crunch.
The leaves release their grip on
the branches as they are supposed to.
Their free-fall to the ground is an intentional,
A dance that is part of the cycle
of bringing forth new.
Their decay feeds the earth
and makes spring possible.
Is there a release, a letting go
that needs to happen in my life?
Are there things my hands are
clinging to that should be released?
Is there anger I need to let go of?
A dream that is no longer
something I should cling to?
A friendship that is no longer
feeding my soul?
Perhaps there things that are meant to
carpet my path instead of cling to my limbs.
Is my heart holding on to things
That if I release them will in turn
bring about new?
Make spring possible?
Letting go is an intentional,
A dance that is meant
for us all.
What do you need to release in order to give way to something new?
