As the leaves transformed into a multitude of brilliant colors spattering the landscape like an artistic masterpiece, she too changed.
As the trees shed their skin of color with every leaf that dropped to the earth,to protect it from the impending arctic storms and the bitter cold winter air, she too transformed and shed her skin. Slowly the pieces of her old self had fallen away revealing a new version of the woman who had known so much suffering.
She let loose of the pain and sorrow she’d been dragging around, wrapped around her like an old cloak dropped away like the falling leaves falling of the majestic oak.
As the earth transforms and changes so too does she. A transformation written in the stars so long ago.
Grateful for all who have crossed her path, bringing up wounds she’d held inside for an eternity, initiating this long overdue transformation.
