The eternal cycle
The light cascades down like a waterfall through the stark bare branches.
It lands on the leaf cover still echoing shades of autumn
The merest hint of green shoots spikes through the mulch
Snowdrops nod their heads in the breeze.
The continuum of life goes on,the eternal circle
So through the pain comes light
Through the darkness, day.
The adventure of spring preparing itself to burst forth
The dark will go and leave only light that sparkles and shines on the world below
The world around will smell fresh and green
The sap will rise, the buds will open spilling forth their blossom
Preparing for the crop to come
The days get longer and the danger of winter starts to pass
The days get marked as they swiftly pass
And so the cycle continues it's path
