The Turning

when gold tinges
tired green and
walnut trees toss
their leaves to
the first passing
breeze and honey-warm
goldenrod heads crest
above waves of
fading queen Anne’s
lace and cicada song
surges and recedes
on waves of
heat-swollen wet air
our earth-rhythmed
circadian bodies
know that it’s time
for the great preparing
of rustling autumn
for the dark homing
for the deep rest
of silent winter


I’m Tracie Nichols, M.A. I guide edge-walking women through the wild and unpredictable borderlands of deep growth and change. I especially love supporting highly sensitive, intuitive and body-wise women who are creating businesses of their own. I’m a business and life coach, aromatherapist, poet and rebel crone.

You can find me on my website, Instagram and Facebook.
