the celebration of death,
holding space for the realization
that after death is birth.
life has a cycle, death and birth.
to understand death is to give importance to life.
making death a beautiful necessary part of life.
like the autumn leaves changing color
falling from the limbs of trees fulfilling their cycle
turning energy inward, pulling inward
toward the the center and into the roots.
laying a deeper stronger foundation
for the coming year
in preparation for new life.
