Alchemy

Humans be nature
Underground springs run through us
Veins of love prevail

Autumn, the elder
Winter’s sleeping beauty rests
Nature moves onward

Mother feeds freely
We find refuge in the earth
Dying transforms soil

Annuals depart
Harvested seeds bring anew
Flower — Life — Return

Towards self and others
Weed out negativity
Desire — Choose light

Break down walls — Evolve
Transmutation feeds the soul
Alchemy is gold
