Theme: Awakening

Reason To Live...


Stifling afternoon
trudging along beaten path
intense grey clouds bring joy.
Gusty wind blows
people scuttling home 
Thunderstorm rips.
Torrential rain
landslide, uprooted trees, wrecked dwellings…
Man’s folly - paying the price.

Spectacular rainbow
life persists amidst hurdles
Succession continues.
Falling leaves, gentle reminder
of life’s multicolored hues…
brief bliss to the restless mind.
Still wintry weather
lone traveler on thoroughfare
miles to go, ambling along.
Diminutive shoot surfaces
instinct to survive amidst odds,
harbinger of Spring.
Mundane existence
season after season
until purpose of living is understood.
