Autumn Lessons

My autumn began in early summer.
Slowly as I learned to be quiet,
to be still,
lessons were given by that master teacher:
They were this:
Shed your life's leaves,
the ones that no longer do their job.
Give up that which needs to die.
Rest so you may renew.
Know that in solitude and tranquil silence,
new essence is being prepared 
to grow.
As I contemplate autumn's schooling,
I can see more clearly
the vibrant colors of this world.

George Winston, "Autumn Medley":
