Surrender

What does it mean to surrender?

I asked the Summer Sun

but she told me:

wait for Autumn.

When I arrived at Autumn’s home

the doormat stated:

Stay Just for a Moment.

I lingered in the crackle of leaves

that once clung to branches

now laying peacefully on the ground.

Sipping a tea that steamed

with the wispy wind

of Winter’s pending arrival,

I forgot what the world

had been shouting at me

what prompted me

to search for surrender.

And so – instead of asking again,

I simply laid my head back

let my hair go

not knowing for sure

much of anything

and sighed.
