Autumn Birthed

Autumn birthed from summer
Slowly rips leaves from limbs
Throws them to the fecund earth
As a temporal sacrificial offering
To endings bringing new beginnings

A change of season is taking place
Transitions in a time of flux
When mercurial roots connect
My pagan flesh to earthen longings
Pulling me deeper into myself
Pulling my hands deeper into fertile soil
To mingle with blood, sweat and tears
Creating new life to be born anew
