Midweek Musing: on trees, and embracing endurance

Observing the trees: Autumn.

As I note the leaves' changing colours,
I wonder – do they change colour in anticipation
of the shortening of the days, or
do the smaller hours of sunshine bring
about the fading colour, detachment
from the branch?

As I note the trees' undressing in
preparation for the lean times, I wonder –
how I might embrace the seasons of endurance
with trust and abandon, with hope
for the returning of the sun?
