Hollow Reeds

Clear night
with dry cold
and east wind,
change coming
in quiet steps
as last leaves fall,
bare branches stir.
Fullness past
we may empty
with the earth,
hollow reeds
for winter music.

    Beautiful, Don — with the Solstice past, I feel a new wind bringing its winter music. May it purify, and heal.

    Beautiful image, Don, hollow reeds for winter music. It stirs in me a sense of deep, peaceful surrender, allowing the music to flow lyrically through me, and out into the ether.
