Deciduous – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

Maybe you’re not late.

Will you trust Mother Earth

with Autumn’s end

even when you don’t feel ready?

Maybe you are right on time

keeping the cycle.

A tree with your own falling leaves.

Maybe your season is happening

just as it should be.

  1. I love the perspective of your poem, Ali, the way you address the deciduous tree, and that you don’t specify what species – a beautiful metaphor for the human condition. I especially love the lines:
    ‘Maybe your season is happening
    just as it should be.’

    1. Kim, thank you so much for your feedback. It’s always interesting to hear what others receive from my words. Nature has a lot to teach us if we are paying attention. Thank you for the inspirational prompt to write from
