Circles and cycles
seemingly back to the start.
At times feelings of falling apart.
Much like Groundhog’s Day
until the lesson is learned,
the part made whole,
what is outward becomes inward: enfolded.
Just as the season’s cycle,
so do the lessons,
again like the corkscrew
piercing deeper into shadows.
From the death of fallen leaves
new life sprouts again
in the spring.
Destruction precedes construction.
Again and again
the wheel turns ’round
pouring seeds and fodder
to the ground.
We can choose to resist this
yet it all happens, regardless.
To be vulnerable, allowing cultivation,
and not fallowing of sacred ground is true strength.
