Never The Same


With the advent of Autumn, I look back with fondness to a time in my life of great change. And, with that said, I was recently thinking about the cyclical changes that occur in nature.. particularly the changes of leaves on trees ... like a little Microcosm of the grand scheme of Life. We are Born (Budding) , we Grow (Green leaves) , We Change (Colorful Fall leaves) , we pass on ( Brown, Dried leaves). Like leaves, our very existence can nourish the Earth , making rich the way for growth of others; as we Grow, as we Change, even when we take our Leave. Moreover, the Essence of us lives on in what we leave of ourselves. Will you be able to look back with fondness at the growth and changes you are making in this life?


Never The Same  

Never the Same
From the day I debuted on the Bough
Changes came
Tender, green Gaia’s ingĂ©nue budded to offerings of the Now.  

Never the Same
Divested of green, languid canopy; conformity fell and Seity did rise
Changes Came
Youth’s naivete and dawning light gave way to hues that sweet Life could synthesize.  

Never the Same
Life burst forth as Hibitions took their leave.
Changes came
In a wind swept dance,  Borne cyclically, to fertile forest, at its eve.  

Never the Same
Seasoned seed disembarked to start of my Journey’s end
Changes came
Earth’s requited Enrichment continued, and the fallen seed, would once again ascend.
