hope, letting go, nature

Leaving

“Leave the familiar for a while.
Let your senses and bodies stretch out

Like a welcomed season
Onto the meadows and shores and hills.”

-by Hafiz (from All The Hemispheres)

Leaving

by Carmen H Gray

Heart, absconded

Quiet and mutable

Life, responded

Jagged and beautiful

Leaves fall

Trees sigh

Birds call

Winds fly

A vessel is just a space

An undefined depression

An empty place

To fill with expression

Zero is potential

Unopened

The existential

Yet unspoken
