transition… a few words from Paulette

transition

love this time of year

the shifting light,

the early dark

the drying leaves

the rustle underneath the footsteps

 

the warmth is different with the breeze sifting by

as if a warning of the cooleness to come

 

but there is a melancholy

the change, the energy

 

me

it starts to take me deeper

quieter

into a different stillness

from summer

 

the summer of light,

of vibrancy,

of extreme play, of fullness

 

and now the quiet desire

of softness

of words

of the dive inward

IMG_3656

it is  the melancholy of death

impending and upending

of age, growing older

of change

of legacy,

and passing on the tree

the tree of life

the tree of connection

of letting go

of giving back

 

the shedding of tears

the dismantling of layers

 

of building up and breaking down

back to the simple, the lusciousness,

the juiciness

 

back home, my home, me

just me

only me
