plants fall over
turning golden and brown
wishing to rejoin
little star lady
enriching autumn salads
rose hips ripen fully
softening to release
all over the place
from forest wood chips
of the fairy realm
seeds latch onto
steadfast in their pursuit
a beautiful lesson
to watch burdock
dark brown plant
sending off her seeds
full of new life
into the world
she does not linger
in feelings of regret
she lived fully
now dies fully
each seed head holding
a multitude of promise
I follow burdock
releasing my life
into the holy darkness
knowing new life will emerge
I have sown
