A Poem by Fay Slimm





Comes now the in-breath of winter,
the back-end of warmth, the yin
of declining year.
The nap of nature, the slumbering,
the slowing of wheels, the song
of impulsive sleep.


Comes now the time for root retune,
the quiet withdrawal, the preview
of cold's intention.
The cycle of balance, the re-forming,
the begin of dwindle, the course
of need to reflect.


Comes now the calm of taking pause.
Comes now the recharging of paucity.
