! ! Life Renewed

Rating: 3.3

I look up into blue, blue heaven,
watching a cloud move slowly
drifting, floating, as it passes aimlessly
through the unique experience of
a firmament that holds the truth of all.

As this white, wispy, fluffy cloud moves
it grows bigger as it collects, and gathers
moisture from below, it is happy knowing
its mission is to be a ship, to carry the
natures spirit, life’s renewal, water.

It is at peace, content, knowing that
when its life’s elixir falls as rain upon our
world, it will disappear, will be no more,
but given time its life’s force will return
to serve yet again, in yet another form.

Each ending is always
the start of something new.
Life’s perpetual changes manifest
as a rebirth of something else.
Each time the sun rises,
it sees a different world,
at dusk it sets again, and we are
happy knowing it will rise again.

Like magic, plants grow, flowers blossom,
seeds fall, nuts crack and new life appears.
As each season ends, a new one begins.
A cycle of plenty is followed by one of drought.
Our own cycle of birth and death must
surely follow on to breathe a life renewed.
One energy one life force encompasses all we see,
it is our Oneness that makes the changes happen.

I sometimes feel amazed that the air we breathe in some ways is the breath of billions of other beings who have come before us. I've never understood those people who want never to die. We enjoy our youth, we live our season and try to make the best of it, and then others are there to carry on. Yes, all things are constantly in renewal and the great wheel of life spins on. Nice poem.

It is at peace, content, knowing that each ending has values and emotion. Renewing life in nature's core we feel the broadness of life. Oneness that makes the changes happen is of ours. An excellent poem is nicely penned.10

Beautifully expressed. If only we could live one day at a time, as if that will be the only and last day.
