NATURE decrees the natural course
of life’s season of repose,
between the first light of sunrise
and the fullness of maturity that grows.
A role that scorns the youthfulness
of life, and extracts a toll,
not on the spirit, but the flesh,
as we strive to attain our goal.
And yet, in this period of calm,
when the world seems to take a breath,
there’s a chance to reflect and renew,
to gather our strength and move ahead.
For the stillness of nature speaks volumes,
and in its silence, we can hear
the whisper of our own soul’s calling,
guiding us through the coming year.
So let us embrace this season of pause,
let us honor the wisdom it brings,
as we prepare for the new day to dawn,
and the cycle of life begins again.
