The Ever-Changing Rhythms of Life (Poem)
The sky is blue
the sun is shining
quietly the wind blows the clouds
slowly across the ever-changing sky
the brightness is slowly encompassed
by the ever-growing darkness of life.
The day is ending
the darkness comes
with ever-increasing strength
a darkness so penetrating
that life itself fades into the frosty shadow
of the encircling gloom.
The sun begins to rise
the darkness that holds life in its grip
slowly dissipates beneath the warmth
of the sun’s life-giving rays
darkness and light mingle together
in the dance of the forever changing rhythms of life.
