autumn elegy

breathing in autumn,

setting free the callow heart

like leaves from a tree.

=== ===

cold waters flow

until rigid with winter –

this is not our way.

=== ===

the lonesome one knows:

where you are doesn’t tell you

who you will yet be.

=== ===

some birds stay longer,

though their flocks left long ago,

and i understand.

=== ===

earth and water speak;

the wind sings, stoking our fire –

this, our element
