The Fifth Season

A solitary leaf falls to the ground signaling a shift

between the heat of summer and the final fanfare of fall

as the earth tilts toward darkness in the northern lands.

Mother moon, now sovereign, will soon kiss our world goodnight

and begin the great Rest.

But here, in this space and time

Where what was and what is to come

co-exist and boundaries are permeable

the surrender that is autumn waits patiently.

In still presence

Breathe in the spicy air

Relish in the abundance the earth offers you

Be grateful with an open hand

Rejoice in your creations.

All that has been birthed must be released.

As the tree relinquishes its seed

so must we let go of the fruits of our labor

allowing them to come to fulfillment

beyond our sway

Soon enough the wheel will once again turns toward the sun

and ignite nature’s passion.

But for now –

Relax, Rejoice, and be at peace.

Blessed be….
