The Lesson Of The Falling Leaves

by Lucille Clifton


With gratitude for the fall sesshin, October 10th-17th, Saint Dorothy's Rest, Camp Meeker.

And thank you, Lucille Clifton, for the capping verse:









The Lesson Of The Falling Leaves

the leaves believe
such letting go is love
such love is faith
such faith is grace
such grace is god
i agree with the leaves
