Abscission

during the poet’s
Autumnal Equinox
thoughts
like leaves
are told “it’s time
to let go”
and like the tree
the mind severs and
encourages each leaf
away from the branches
that gave them birth
sending them on a new path
to become inspiration
for new growth

*For the Daily Post prompt, leaf

  1. And somehow it was the right season for your leaves to fall and land into the yard that is my life. 😊 This is so inspiring… how you made thoughts into leaves and our minds as the trees that give life to those thoughts is just beautiful.
