Seasons

As we walk life’s tortuous paths
we encounter seasons
as life rolls past
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter
pass with certitude
a familiar refrain
weather patterns change to
unexpected patterns
less snow more rain
making the season harder
to explain

As we walk life’s tortuous paths
our lives are like seasons
spring,summer full of love and hope
or autumn gales
when dreams are dashed
and life seems cold and bleak
when setbacks lash
shoulders hunch desolation becomes the norm
and the path is strewn with boulders
winter may seem to set in, to blight
it’s pervasive chill seems set to last
a whole eternity

But seasons turn
springs hope of new life
the abundance of summer
the colours of autumn
and winter too has a beauty

As we walk life’s tortuous paths
we encounter seasons
each has its own beauty
challenges and solutions
we can grow.
