Times of Peace

Walk through the colors of the falling woods.
See how its leavings make no sound
As they drift on the breeze to the
Ground-rising up with green
Moss to greet them.

Walk through the colors of the falling woods.
See how the wooly caterpillars make their
Way, slowly over its leavings, making
No sound-showing their colors to
Predict the next season.

Walk through the colors of the falling woods
See how quiet sounds, when your shoes
Fall on cushions of leaves, making a
Mind calm, anxieties disappear,
And letting in peace.
