Nature’s ways are indeed reflected in our moods and circumstances as we are a part of the same existence, the detail of which in macrocosm/microcosm is painted so meticulously for our observance. Change is the paradigm of all life as we evolve and learn the details of who we are and our endless potential. As we have free will, we choose the paths we walk and therefore suffer the consequences of our bad choice and the rewards of our positive choices. This poem attests to that movement and reality. Hope you enjoy it…
Parted clouds the revelry of decisions made,
the changes from which light praises
a needed direction,
and as light pervades the shadows
and the past is honed smooth,
doubt abates as horizons view is true.
Choices echo like an eagle’s cry,
high above our perspective,
and clarity marks our reason like a crystal,
refracting light in many ways
to give credence to our sight,
as pathways bathe in revealing light.
Balance, like a perfect summer’s day
assumes our minds and plight,
and pathways are clear and smooth
far from storms and adversity,
the dark looming disharmony of denial,
when we become lost in seductive lies.
The air is light, each breath eased,
when change appeases our stubborn will,
abandoned for a trusting of right
and a season of calm order,
the aftermath of storms endured
and the harsh painful lessons procured.
Change, like inclement weather
can force a new perspective,
and amid the chaos of danger
we seek a better path, less fraught with pain,
and in that desert of possibility we
let go of will and allow change to just be.
