Free from Fears
Freeze them in winters age
and find the new colors of spring
maturing into a summer’s sage
and see autumn trees shedding
leaves into the carcass of a skin.
Free from fears and criticism
And other people’s insecure opinion.
Before nature’s manipulation begins
Sorting the seasons into neat closets,
We mend our ways of scarlet sins,
Leave heavy loads and all regrets
Regardless of how the flaws intercept.
Begin within the rhythm to pray
free at last from cares of today.
