Fall

Fall towards yourself
look inward 
dark comes earlier.

Fall behind
who cares
take more time
slow down
step into yourself.

Bones chilled
fingers numb
head in hat
sit with the world around you.

Fall over
no one is watching
pick yourself back up 
lace up your boots
tell it to the squirrels, cows, chickadees, a hawk, 
the creek, fallen leaves, the wind. They're listening.

Bones chilled
fingers numb
head in heart
sit with the world inside you.
