      Disengaging to Rest and do Other Work

      Published in AUIS Literary Journal, The American University of Iraq, Sulaimani

       

      I walk the dogs           

      under a sweetgum tree

      on a crisp day 

       

      I hear sounds like             

      sticks scraping

      or papers rustling

       

      when it occurs

      to me that

      all it is, is

       

      leaves disembarking

      from their life source

      without pain

       

      without a plan

      randomly gliding

      into each other

       

      on their journeys

      down, down, down

      to rest, to decay

       

      to enrich the soil

      to feed the tree

      that gave them life—

       

      the sound

      of  the life cycle

      beginning again.
