A reason for every season

fallAccording to

the calendar

there is an order to everything –

autumn must

exit before

old man winter comes a calling.

Otherwise,

the snow will come

and weigh the branches down –

until all

the branches will

be broken on the ground.

There is a reason

for every season.

I questioned

when death knocked and

so very rudely took you away –

if it were

up to me it

would have played out a different way.

I know not

the purpose here

but I know there is one –

every day,

every moment,

holds a cherished lesson.

There is a reason

for every season.

  1. Loved the verse. What resonated for me are these line, and I quote,

    “I know not
    the purpose here
    but I know there is one –”

    What is this sense that we carry of an overarching purpose even though we no not what it is? Such a sense cannot be from our socialisation. This then becomes the start of our spirituality.

  2. Thank you for reading and for your comment.
    I agree our spirituality comes not from our surroundings but what is within us. It is out sense of divine qualities that elevate and pull us through the mire of tribulation. I, for one, am grateful for that.
    Thanks again for stopping by!

  3. As much as we humans rarely like change, if everything stayed the same and lasted forever – I think that would be a little frightening, we might even feel desperate enough to want to be able to end things! 🙂

  4. And really, we need change to progress. Sure, I’d like to control some of the change thrown my way but I wouldn’t choose wisely. Like you said, it would be a little frightening!
