each crack and shattering
revealed new connections

Nature’s Classroom

Fall illustrates
with astounding beauty and inevitable departures
the lesson of impermanence.

Impermanence


The sky is my teacher
offering lessons in

carrying memories of perfection from the freshness of youth.

making the glitter more brilliant and the shouting more joyful.
