Fall made its debut
While winter tries its seasons suit
Summer was nice and cozy and warm
A few threads of agony in times of storm.
Spring each year comes and goes
It forever softens any woes.
Our personal spring lies in the power of change
We can regenerate and befriend the strange.
Freedom, pleasure joy and peace
Are ours to savor and need not cease.
How we feel and how we see life
Blends together with nature’s permanent drive.
As nature grants us its stunning display
We stumble through hope, lust, ecstasy or dismay
Not always happy with our given course
But like nature subordinate to a higher force
To be able to pulse as part of a whole
Shapes and nourishes the soul.
