Does letting go heal then?

A town I grew up in

O Autumn,

beloved autumn!

Tell me the secret of

Your colorful fade

Tell me the art

of beautifully

diversifying

your death in colors.

You don't fear demise?

Your falling leaves

don't scare you

of separation?

Tell me about isolation

isn't it scary?

If not!

Does letting go heal, then?

Don't you miss yourself

as freely moving and anchored leaves?

Branches of bird sit

loud with lullaby

Peaceful open sky concert!

Nothing makes you gloomy?

Your arrival leaves

deep longing,

melancholic evenings

and maintains

Distant solace!

O beloved autumn,

Tell me,

Does letting go Heal then?

Hey, Jill! Been a while I am off from the internet. The best news is I see angel communicating with me through numbers. Once we talked about it but I was totally clueless, now every time number 222, 1111, 33, 55, 44 keep floating. I am being more aware, stable, and firm. Life is transforming.
