Sea Change

Can this be a sea change in me

a letting go of all those things

I once strived towards

the need to do and see and have

the deep desires for True Love

and yes Fame now vanished

along with even striving itself?

Can I be settling evenly into

the winter of my life

the long peaceful nights

with their bright moon

the busyness of summer now passed

a time I reflect on rather than plan for.

It does feel so and thus correct for

at sixty one years old this could well be

the last quarter the final season

the beds of my life properly mulched

against frost and snow the colorful flowers

spent and now apropos the quiet

reaching of roots down and down.
