Change: One Deep Breath

I'd been thinking about the changes of fall, about the changes that we all need to make, and this came out:

Change is here, right now!
A fire burning within
Embrace it and turn
to living gold, like fall poplars
dying to self, Renewing...

every change is "dying to self"...what a beautiful way of expressing it.

Nice alchemy.

Just saw this from my train trip upstate on Tuesday:

golden poplar leaves jiggle
coin of the season

I just love this. I want to print it out and put it up on my lawn...but I'm chicken.

Thank you, Christine. Not a yardsign, but you've given me another idea...
