Just as in harvesting Fall
all the sugar settles languidly into the soul roots of the Tree

While leaves turn vibrant and dulling
as they quiver on their perches

Until the wind blows and plunges them
head or stem long down to the moist Earth

Appearing to be death and loss
as grief gathers in the gray storm clouds that float from the East

Barren and alone standing without sight before the world
Holding It’s breath and clenching It’s growth rings

Awaiting the warm exhale of promise
that rides down from the seasoned Moon to light up the Sun

Colliding the path of Frozen to Freedom
with a surge of power unstoppable

Enlivening past promises to dare foliate and blossom
with imprinted perfection of equal past imperfection

Creating a secret beauty that is eternally held
while secreted away in deep veins of existence uncut.

Dear Janice, you have outdone yourself with this incredibly powerful sparkling gem of consciousness.

Absolutely awesome language which is born in recognition of your own sacred power to be perfection.

Love the association with a tree's seasonal mutation.

Brava!

Love,

The trees are another form of consciousness that express themselves in a reality filled with experiences that expand their awareness. Trees are examples, as well as teachers. I appreciate your work Janice.

Beautiful poem.
