Heavy Weather - Poem by Edmund V. Strolis

In the valley of uncertainty the earth person dwells
Each chasm a self-inflicted hindrance to happiness
A ravine deepening with guilt and red with regret
Doubt, the thorny saddle that tortures the ride

How green was this meadow, once upon a time
Fresh, wild and unhindered, boundless horizons
Light minds full of hope care and understanding
Spontaneous hearts found a thousand ways to touch

How peculiar when the rot sets in to life's timber
How strange to feel the restless wayward winds
A storm of the mind, imagined heavy weather
Nature's lesson is, that all good things must end.

    Verily, life is mysterious with its uncertainty and
    dynamic nature that makes us ambiguous...10

    Nature's lesson is, that all good things must end.....
    yes because nothing is eternal,
    but good things shall return
    because even that ends have the end

    Yes indeed and that knowledge is perspective which allows a freedom of existence.
