Relinquish

Like the pages of an unopened book
waiting to be turned
A new month begins
with weekly calendars instead of chapters
Numbered days waiting to be filled
with events that write my life story.
To everything there is a season-
Summer sun and lemonade surrender
to pumpkin-spice filled Autumn days.
I relinquish busy for better
                ­performance for peace
                   anxiety for acceptance.
May I live this season well-
Embrace the falling leaves
and seize the day.

-Debbie Neal Crawford
