raking leaves – November 15


raking leaves, blowing

leaves, feeling the



of cleaning my space,

cooperating with nature,



the intricate design

that clings in each



so that more might

be born amidst all

the rough.


satisfying to clean,

clear, claim a space

of care


and collaboration

with life

in my time.
