Cycles
ebb
flow
inhale
exhale
expand
contract

Night
gives way
to early morning,
birdsong and daylight.
The sun rises high in the sky
building to a crescendo of life and activity.
Then it slowly relaxes
sinking to the horizon
we move inside
close doors
moving back
into night

New moon
gives way
to a sliver of light,
growing steadily to a full round orb,
then slowly releases --
back to the sliver
then gone,
new moon
once again.

Winter,
the world rests.
Slowly,
the days lengthen.
Early spring flowers
harken the change.
Bright shiny green
unfurls in the world.
Energy builds.
Spring gives way to
the deep greens
of summer,
hot lazy days,
the peak of ripeness.
Summer fades,
leaves turn to shades of
yellow, brown, orange, red
soon blowing away
leaving the stark nakedness
of winter.
We draw in,
hibernate,
wait...

ebb
flow
inhale
exhale
expand
contract
