Autumn Sounds

~by Ananada Vrindavan devi dasi


My favorite sounds of Autumn

As we move from cool to cold

Are the sounds of the geese against the sky

As they make their way south to home


They do not wait or think to stay

‘We’ll manage’ is not their mood

They are up and away on an urgent call

And a direction that does not sway


And so should we with knowledge clear

Be also heading home

Away from the cold of this shadow world

To the warmth of spiritual shores


Be like the geese and say it loud

To keep up with those who lead

To rise and fly away from here

Forever held and forever free
