Falling into the Unknown


Leaves Changing Color, Tiruvannamalai, South India

As if by stealth heat creeps upon the South Indian land

And the trees respond in kind.

Shedding leaves as the temperatures rise

Until the hot of the day

Rolls unceasing into the heat of the night.


Dried Leaves, Tiruvannamalai, South India

As this once verdant green

Covers the earth in yellows and browns,

And withering life turns into pale beauty,

My eyes witness a surrendering

To the forces of nature, a letting go –


Into the simple caress,

The loving embrace of the Unknown.
