green leaves
snowice
fall winter
trees fall
across the path
gray cloud sky
release assumptions
enjoy
change

2
awaken
clouds pass quickly
inventory
the heaviness
and release
send what
does not serve you
beyond and above
the treetops
breathe your new
freedom
walk
your path
even when the path
is steep
be glad
for the path
today.

3
change
as strong as
mountain winds
transformation
buzzing around
your head
change
volume increased.

4
as dark as the clouds seem
sun returns
warms your heart
smile
as you watch
what the universe
shows you.
dark clouds open
to blue skies
and return as
dark clouds again.

5
walking
along the path
snow falls
suddenly from tree branch
crashing thumping
making i/you
notice surprise
laugh.
