Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been before…. — Ecclesiastes 3:15
What adornment does nature need?
None other than the elemental
realness of soil, water, nutrients —
the truth of a fallen leaf,
the honesty of split bark,
the epiphany of scattered petals —
all becoming a denouement of autumn,
a tapestry of necessary decay,
a harvesting and gathering sleep
before the awakening growth of spring.
