how to begin, or  rather
a feeling
out of sorts,
from our own  container
like snakes shedding,
eyes covered
growing out of skin
old parts drying up,
no longer needed
discovering existence
with parts
ever present
searching for warm
dark places
yearning for
rest and reconnection
solitude and safety

this early change
creeping through
the first days of September
closing off our outer veins
not falling, though gearing  up
foliage starts to ripen
as rivers swell,
sweeping swift reminders
that change can be both
catastrophic and beautiful
in the same moment.
